the "anchor" only applies to floating images and objects, so if the image is inline, it won't be present.
in which case, right-click the image, and check that the floating settings are set to anything but inline.

next part: once that is done, you might not see the anchor symbol if the special characters are hidden.
for that, you might want to click the paragraph symbol (phi) in the tool bar.
once you clicked that, the anchor symbol of the selected image should be displayed, and you can then drag that symbol to the paragraph you want the image to be attached to.

inline images behave just like a character you type, they are just, usually much bigger...
