About This Section
A call to action is one of the most basic elements of any website, especially one focused around sales or sign-ups. The Image & Text (with CTA) section combines images and text in a single- or multi-column layout to focus the attention of the visitor on a single action that you want them to take. And like all CTA sections, it provides a button that links directly to that action or activity.
This article covers the the versatile Image & Text (with CTA) section. If you want to build a call to action that focuses primarily on text, take a look at our article on the Text (with CTA) section; if you'd rather keep things simple with a banner-width image, consider the Call to Action section instead.

Text: The heading is the title for the entire section, and the subheading appears directly above or below the heading (depending on your Theme).
Image: Upload an image to highlight your call to action, and set descriptive Image alt text to help with accessibility. You can use the Image size slider to scale the size of your image relative to the rest of the section. Remember that image files have a maximum size of 4MB.
Button: Select which type of page to Link to, and then the specific Bundle or Product you want the button to target. Edit the Button text as appropriate, and adjust the Button style if necessary.
Layout: You can remove top or bottom section padding if there appears to be too much space between this and adjacent sections. Adjust the Column layout between one and two columns to get the look you want. The Heading alignment controls how the heading and subheading are aligned in the section.
In Vogue themes, you can also set the Background color to your theme's primary or secondary color.
