If I need to copy a large amount of pictures into a Word doc how do I make them movable without selecting an option under "wrap text" which juggles the pictures around and throws them out of sequence.

If you want precise + free + independent movement of text & pictures, you really need a "Desktop Publishing" program. Wrapping doesn't come into it (unless you want) .... just drag text/images with the mouse or....  select and then use the arrow keys. You can also use optional layers to great effect.

 You probably have Publisher with your present version of office. Give it a quick try.

Any movement of pictures or text isn't random, but is following the rules for the chosen wrapping option.

If you choose 'in front of' or 'behind', the text won't move when you drag that picture about. Otherwise the text will try to move out of the way. If any text that moves contains the anchor for another picture, then the other picture might have to move with it.

Show the formatting characters with the Show/Hide (¶) button. Then you will see the anchor symbol in the left margin bedside the anchor paragraph for the selected picture. You can drag the anchor to another paragraph, including into a table cell, if necessary.

Also, be aware that the 'More  Layout Options' item in the 'Position' dropdown opens the 'Advanced Layout' dialogue. There is an 'Options' section at the bottom of the 'Picture Position' tab. You might find it helpful to experiment with these settings.

You can set the basic option you prefer by using File > Options > Advanced. In the "Cut, copy, and paste" section, change the "Insert/paste pictures as:" setting.
