Managing Images in the Image Control

Hi Klaus

Where can I find the control limits where it says the image control does or
does not work in a background?
If the image control does not work in a background for different cards, how
can a card retain the image if it was added to cards if it was not a part
of the background? Would you add it with the location specified as an image
alone?

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
