Question Complete Newbie Seeks Help

Hello All,

I am brand new to both this forum and using Elementor. I am learning everything on the fly and have been able to figure out most problems thanks to YT. However, I cannot find any information anywhere for completing a new task. I am hoping one of the experts here will be able to offer some guidance on how to do it.

What I am trying to do is have a section broke down into four (4) columns. In each column I would like to have a background image, then have an image (?) on top of the background in the color of white and finally having some text on top.

Something like this:

I really would appreciate any help I can get on this. Also, I am using the latest version of WP and the free version of elementor.

Your request is quite easy to do. When you add a new section (+ button),you can choose between 1 to 8 columns. Choose the 4 column section.
In settings (style tab) choose background image, choose another image on "Hover", or go to background overlay (a little bit lower) and choose another image or text.
