How to position text over an image with CSS

0 votes

How can I use CSS to center a text above an image?

<div class="image">
    <img src="sample.png"/>
    <div class="text">
       <h2>Some text</h2>
    </div>
</div>

I'm having trouble doing something similar to the one below; this is my current CSS.

<style>
.image {
   position: relative;
}

h2 {
   position: absolute;
   top: 200px;
   left: 0;
   width: 100%;
   margin: 0 auto;
   width: 300px;
   height: 50px;
}
</style>

enter image description here

When I use background image, html2pdf does not produce anything:

<style>
#image_container{
    width: 1000px;
    height: 700px;
    background-image:url('switch.png');
}
</style>
<a href="prints.php">Print</a>
<?php ob_start(); ?>
<div id="image_container"></div>
<?php 
$_SESSION['sess'] = ob_get_contents(); 
ob_flush();
?>

Here's prints.php:

<?php require_once('html2pdf/html2pdf.class.php'); ?>
<?php
$html2pdf = new HTML2PDF('L', 'A4', 'en');
$html2pdf->writeHTML($_SESSION['sess']);
$html2pdf->Output('random.pdf');
?>
