Once you click outside of the image, your pet’s picture will become part of the image. NOTE: If you don’t like how you’ve positioned the image, you can Edit/Undo to remove the image and try again.

If the pet image that you pasted into the document was originally larger than the banner, you’ll see that white space has been added to the right and bottom of the banner file. Use the handle bar at the bottom right corner of the white space to click and drag upward to remove from banner image.
