Can't Read White Text on a Light Background

Just FYI for future posts, the white text used to identify "Today's Product Deal" is difficult to read against a light-colored background.

(The deal in this case was https://www.dealsplus.com/apparel-accessories_deals/p_2-pack-the-childrens-place-toddler-girls-print-skort, but it doesn't matter which deal it was.)

See how it looks here, the deal on the left vs darker background for text describing the deal on the right - https://www.linkpicture.com/q/WhiteText_1.jpg

Everything looks normal this deal you posted. Please adjust your Laptop/Phone brightness.

You are misunderstanding this post. The deal on its own is fine, the problem is what happened when they posted it in the top banner and used a white background on the left side. They normally use a color behind the white text, but they didn't on this one. Look at the banner deals and you'll see what I mean. The message is for admins, not you.

The background chosen was actually more of a beige color, but here you see the problem - https://www.linkpicture.com/q/WhiteText_1.jpg
The background color is too light to present the text well.

Same problem again today with a different deal - https://www.linkpicture.com/q/LightBackground.jpg

Text for the deal on the left is harder to read than the deal on the right.

I agree with you, your image is a different pair of deals today with a better contrast color in the background.

The error you see in FP with the scrolling panel is something that is by default. I explain that window automatically changes its color, makes a scan of the color that is most present in the image and places the similar background, when we place deals with white or light backgrounds, obviously the white letters are not displayed.

This is something that programmers have to improve or change the color of the letter to gray or black so that it looks outstanding when we have deals images with light colors.

Thank you dsvictor40, that is exactly the reason I posted this observation - to let the programmers know.
