Hi :)

Two possibilities spring to mind but i'm not sure how valid they are.  

1.  I think the layer of the images can be 'moved' forwards and back so.  If the 
larger image gets selected then find the Graphics/frames toolbar.  At the end is 
an anchor but just before that are 2 icons for moving the frame backwards and 
forwards.  Move the larger image to the back and then it should be easy to 
select the smaller image.  After doing whatever modifications you required then 
you might need to move the smaller image further back.

2.  If you think the smaller image might be a png or gif (very common & good 
formats) then try clicking on a part of the smaller image that is coloured 
differently from the image behind it.  This is the easiest thing to try but 
least likely imo.

3.  Are there really 2 separate images?  Could it be 1 single image with an 
extra layer embedded in the image?  Can you try opening the image in Gimp or 
PhotoShop or something like that?  Gimp is free and OpenSource but again i think 
this is unlikely to be the right answer.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] How to select a small image placed on a large 

LibreOffice 3.30
App: Writer

I have read WriterGuideOOo.pdf, looked through the LO wiki and the OOo 
forums--what is the trick to select a small image which has been placed on top 
of a larger image?
I point at the small image and click on it so I can re-position, re-size, or 
whatever, but the larger image behind the one I want to select is always 
selected instead of the foreground image.
I am doing this in Writer.
There is a convenient one-click way to do this, isn't there?
