how do you know if the user wants to move the image or the text?

maybe use a modifier key to help you differentiate between what the user
wants to grab.

 if controlKey() is down then ...

or maybe give a hotkey to select either text or image..... and maybe a red
border around the selection while its selected so that the user knows what
is selected?
