DO (Image Left): In this edited version, a blur has been added to bottom of photos containing text, and the font color has been changed to the default dark colors instead of white. Additionally, the text has been moved down to have consistent placement with other grid items, allowing the blur to be contained to a smaller portion of the image. Right: The text now possesses the needed 3:1 contrast ratio for accessibility. Even better, the text also passes the 4.5:1 ratio for small-sized text, ensuring good readability for users.
