I am using Office XP standard version. I need to insert pictures of digital

images onto a page where I can overlap or layer one image on top of another

without all the white space from a boundary box. I have one large image and

want to place several smaller images onto the larger image without the white

space showing through.

      As far as I know, Word can only do this with GIF graphics, that have a

      "transparent" color set in the graphic, before it's imported into Word.

      Otherwise, the best choice would probably be to make the graphic composite in a

      graphics program that supports the functionality you require. Save this as a

      graphics file and import it into Word as a single graphic. (Note that this

      would also speed page layout and display of the document).
