Default Locking an image position

We use templates for our digital letterhead, memos, etc. with our logo/tag
lines as image files in the headers and footers. We have been able to lock
the images from shifting in the header and footer on the first page when text
is added, but can not stop the shift of the logo in the footer on the second
page. Have tried all different types of text wrapping and 'lock anchor'
along with the other Options in Advanced Layout. Have also tried different
image types in case it didn't like jpg or tiff. Anyone know how to 'lock'
the position so that we can add text in the footer without the logo moving?

not sure how you went about making sure that it works OK with your
header, but most anything you do there you can also do with (or: to :-))
a footer ...

I frequently use a borderless 1x2 table, with fixed dimensions, and put
the picture as an *inline* object into one of the cells.

Thanks, Robert. Can create the table in the footer but not sure how to put
the picture as an *inline* object into the cell. Can I then put text
wrapping on the cell and move it into the lower right hand corner?

version of Word? Things are esp. different in 2007 vs. older versions ...

You probably can, but I wouldn't. _If_ you choose the table approach,
you simple move the table (cell) boundaries around until it suits you.
If you use a "wrapping" approach, then the table is not necessary, as
you can position the picture as a Shape (basically wherever you like).

That's what I meant with my first remark: technically, there is
certainly no difference between positioning a (floating) image in the
header or footer (or in the normal text layer).
