Trouble positioning an image on a sticker template

Postby trauts14 » Wed Jan 14, 2015 10:40 pm

With the attached image, I would like to put it in the lower left and lower right corner of each sticker. I cannot get the image to the lower corners. It always tries to go slightly above the mower corners. Attached is the sticker template and the image I am trying to position. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Just insert the picture twice into the file (anchored the paragraph below the table) and align the first one left, and align second one right.

I tried and I was only able to get one of the images attached to a lower corner. The second image will not attach to the other lower corner? I am not sure what exactly you mean by, "Paragraph" when working with a template. Attached is my screencap of what I have so far. Thanks.

Oh sorry, I thought so: "one page is one sticker" - and you want to put the pictures to the lower corner of the PAGE...

You can make a Background picture (in a picture editor software, or in the Draw), which is contains two piece of the original image, and some empty space betweet them. And then you can apply the picture as backgrond picture of the table cell aligned to the bottom of the cell.

Left click on the table - Table (table format) - Background - As: graphic For: cell - File: browse - Type: position (middle of the bottom)

Thank you. How can I duplicate this to each of the 10 stickers on the page?

For example: repeat it manually in the upper right cell, and then select the first row.
Table - Insert - Rows - Before
will copy/repeat the background pictures too.

Thank you, but I am very new at this and do not understand. I know very little about this process. I am attempting to learn.
