Help! Need to color my text containers

I hope this is possible? In my mock-up I did in Word I was able to have different colored text boxes that overlayed my photos to stand out more. Can I not do this using BookSmart? For example, a solid purple text box with light colored text, etc.

Yes, you can do this, but not in Blurb. Create a colored image, say a large oblong box, in your photo editing software. Save it as a JPEG file. Import it to Blurb as a picture. Place it where you want it in your book, and then add text from Blurb over top.
