even though you are using a picture, there is still an active color beneath it that determines the font color.
Here are some instructions
Change it to something light colored or white. Display>
Appearance> Advanced>Item> Desktop.
You'll need to turn off "use drop shadows" in System Properties> Advanced> Performance> Settings> Visual Effects as XP's drop shadows are always done off of white text.
One drawback, this will force a black font but it will also put "holes" in
the wallpaper - no transparent icon labels. If you prefer to keep the
transparency, there is an alternative.
Leave background color and drop shadows alone. Then, using a graphics program, open a copy of the image file being used for wallpaper. Use the graphics program to adjust the image so that light text is more visible.
Examples: Use the burn tool on the edge(s) of the image or use color
adjustments to darken the entire image. I've darkened edges on quite a few images for my system. Acceptable results were achieved with a minimal amount of editing.
