How to Combine Image Background & Box Shadow Options with Divi

In this Divi post, we’ll be showing you how you can combine the background and shadow options of an Image Module. This post is meant to stimulate your imagination and show you how new Divi features can work with existing ones–leading to creative results. To help you with the creative process, we’ve created 4 combinations which we’ll show you how to recreate step by step. Let’s take a look at the examples.

First Example

Now that we’ve shown you what you can expect from this post, let’s take a look at how you can recreate the following example with only a few steps within Divi and no additional CSS code:

image module

Add Two-Column Row

Column 1 Background Color

Add a two-column row to a standard section and choose ‘rgba(12,113,195,0.11)’ as the Column 1 Background Color.

image module

Spacing

Then, move on to the Design tab. Add ‘200px’ to the top margin and ‘150px’ to the bottom padding of the first column.

Add Image Module to First Column (Desktop & Tablet)

Sizing

Then, add an Image Module to the first column of the row you’ve created. This Image Module will apply to desktops and tablets only. The first thing you’ll need to do is change the Width to ‘94%’.

Spacing

Then, open the Spacing subcategory, enable the ‘Show Space Below The Image’ option, add ‘-150px’ to the top margin and ‘-110px’ to the left margin of the image.

Box Shadow

Scroll further down the tab and apply the following box shadow to the image:

  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 80px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 80px
  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 0px
  • Box Shadow Spread Strength: 6px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(173,173,173,0.79)

Visibility

Lastly, go to the Advanced tab and disable the Image Module on mobile.

Clone Image Module (Phone)

Most of the settings that we’ve used for the desktop and tablet version of the Image Module are the same for the mobile version as well. That’s why we’re going to clone the Image Module and make some additional changes that’ll match the mobile screen.

Change Box Shadow

The first thing we’ll need to change is the box shadow. Instead of using the desktop settings, use the following settings instead:

  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 33px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 78px
  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 0px
  • Box Shadow Spread Strength: 6px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(173,173,173,0.79)
  • Box Shadow Position: Outer Shadow
    image module

Visibility

The next and last thing we’ll need to do is change the visibility of this second Image Module. Instead of disabling it on phone, go ahead and disable it on both tablet and desktop.
