As you move your mouse onto your picture, the pointer will change to a cross. This means that you can click and drag the image to where ever you want to place it and let go. As you are dragging, the picture does not move but a box with a dotted line will follow your mouse instead. This is your picture and wherever the dotted line is, your picture will go if you let go of your mouse button. As you move your mouse into the corner of the picture, the pointer will change to a double arrow. This means that you can re- size the picture if you hold your mouse button down. Again, the picture itself will not get bugger but a dotted line box will appear and get bigger or smaller when you move your mouse and your picture will take on the size of the dotted line box as soon as you let go of the mouse button.
