Can someone refer me? will RTFM.



You do it with two layers:

- a plain text layer (letters at full opacity, on transparent background)

- a second layer under the text with a colored rectangle, adjust the
layer opacity to taste.

You can put both layers in a layer group so that you can handle them
together (move around on the cover, or move them up/down in the layer stack)
