Use layers, go insert - layer and the insert your flash movie in that layer. You may move the layer anywhere on your page. Also you could break apart your image in a program such as imageready and save as html and graphics. then you could delete the images where you want to insert the flash movie. Just 2 ways to accomplish this task. Make sure you test your page for the correct effect. Hope this helps:)

yep, layers is the way to go. keep in mind though, if you try to put your image in a layer, and the flash under it, flash takes precedence. flash always goes on top. anythng else?

but if you're doing that . pls check the cross browser compatibility issue. .. i've found at times that layers tend to behave in a funny sort of way in old NN browsers
