Right click on the picture, got to format, then layout, and select 'in front of text' then ok and you can drag it where you want.

The problem is that the picture is inserted where the cursor is and, if you want to position it below the last line, there is nothing for it to anchor to. I get around it by putting the picture in a text box, which can then be dragged and resized to suit you.
