Now we are going to insert another image that is superimposed on the image, which we previously selected, remember that you can edit them. To do this, we go back to Insert and select another image in this case it will be a girl in a bathing suit to continue with the example.

The new image has been included in another sheet, now we have two sheets, one with the image of the beach and the other with the image of the girl.

Now we have to make both photos are on the same sheet, this is achieved by selecting the photo of the beach image. Then we go to Format then Adjust text and finally we select behind the text.
