Insert Picture Tiling


First, please understand that I'm a noob with OpenOffice. I used the Microsoft Office package for years which means that I'm having to replace old habits with newly acquired skills with OO. I'm trying to make a slide in Impress. The slide consists of text and a picture. I have the text in the slide. It is 2 text frames superimposed over each other to get the relationship of the text that I want. I also want to insert a picture. I have the picture with background removed and resized to about 180 pixels square. The problem is that when I use Insert>Picture>From File then choose the .png file, Impress adds it as a tiled background behind my text in an area much larger than the text frame. I tried to copy the pic to the clipboard and paste it into the slide, also. I got the same result. It is as if I have some option set in the slide that says to tile any image inserted. I know so little about Impress at this point that I don't know how to troubleshoot the issue.

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.


Thank you.
