I'm working on a webpage and I would like to have an image showing on top of a flash file, but the picture is showing underneath the flash.  How can I put the image on top of flash?

You likely need to add "wmode" and "transparent" parameters to your flash code.  eg see code below from a similar recent post for an example  If it doesn't work by just adding the "wmode" and "transparent" parameters, post back with your code; you may also have to mess with z-index or other elements of your styles.
<script type="text/javascript">

AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0','width','750','height','250','id','move2firstalliance','align','middle','src','move2firstalliance','quality','high','bgcolor','#ffffff','name','move2firstalliance','allowscriptaccess','sameDomain','pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','wmode','transparent','movie','move2firstalliance' ); //end AC code

      </script>

      <noscript>

      <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="750" height="250" id="move2firstalliance" align="middle">

                  <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />

                  <param name="movie" value="move2firstalliance.swf" />

                  <param name="quality" value="high" />

                  <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

                  <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />

                  <embed src="move2firstalliance.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="750" height="250" name="move2firstalliance" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" wmode="transparent">    </embed>

        </object>

        </noscript>

note that in the example the wmode and transparent parameters occur TWICE, once way over near the right end of the line that begins with "AC_FL_RunContent" and a second time in the <noscript> block.  Depending on your setup, you may have only one of these two blocks, or both.

sorry for verbal diarrhea but I just realized that the transparency parameters occur a THIRD time, at the right end of the <embed> line as well.
also, just had a quick look at the stylesheet of of a page I setup with an image overlaying a flash object, and I didn't have to use z-index at all, just absolute positioning of the overlay div, plus those transparency parameters.
