Hey guys, how do I do such a gradual background for the text like the one on picture, please?

Hey Jana89,

There's definitely more than one way to achieve an effect like this, but I believe the simplest one would probably be to create a rectangular shape for the text box and fill it with a gradient that goes from black to transparent. To make one of the gradient Color Stops transparent, click it to open the Apple Colors window, then drag the Opacity slider to 0%.

Hope that helps!
