The new image normally will end up behind the first picture you inserted and cannot be seen, but you can see the handles.
RIGHT CLICK and the menu will appear
Select ORDER the dialog will offer you the capability of arranging the order of the images TO FRONT, TO BACK etc.......
Use those choices on any of the pictures you inserted to organize the order of the pictures.
BUT REMEMBER THAT ANY PICTURE YOU INSERTED HAS TO BE SENT <BEHIND TEXT> as soon as you insert it.
