As far as know you can't just "drag and drop" pictures where ever. The only way I know how to do this is to create a DIV layer and insert the picture in that then you can move it where ever.

You can create a layer by going to Insert->Layer Objects->Layer. It will then place the layer on your screen and you can move it about the web site. It does put CSS code for the position of the layer.

Once you get the site done you have to upload it to the internet via a web host. Many people here say DreamHost is great. If you already have a host you should be able to set up a FTP user and upload your site that way.

Most reliable way is to first upload the pictures that you are going to use (after first noting down their pixel sizes),
either to a folder on your server or to an imagehost like http://www.freeimagehosting.net/ (free)
and copy down the http address of where it is.

Then choose "Insert>Image Objects>Image Placeholder" to where-ever you want your image, putting in the image size when it asks.
Link the image placeholder to the image.
