How to scroll an image

If I understand what you're asking, you want to essentially "mask" the image
so that the portion of the image that extends beyond the mask region is
hidden.  One way to do this is group your image (a group can consist of a
single object), set the rect dimensions of the group for the "visible" space
you want, and lock the group so it doesn't resize.  Then you can set the
vScroll and hScroll properties of the group to shift the position of the
image within the group.  The scrollbars of the group do not need to be
visible for you to set vScroll and hScroll.
