The opposite side example must include “Reverse columns” for mobile devices, see the “Advanced” tab, “Responsive panel”. z-index of 1 has been assigned to the text column in order to bring it atop the image column.

No CSS code at all. Download and install “OoohBoi Steroids for Elementor” add-on and use “Overlaiz” extension to manipulate the Background Overlay (which is the photo) size and position. “OoohBoi Steroids for Elementor” is completely free and can be downloaded from the official WordPress plugins repo.
Highlight the image column first! “Background Overlay” panel can be found under the “Style” tab. All of the “Overlaiz” settings/options are the part of the “Background Overlay”.
