Access 2013 - How to display pictures in a Form

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I have a small contacts database.  In my table there are 1 field called contact picture, a text field, which display the path of the jpeg file of the contact.  On the  Form I have an Image and under data, I have set the control source to this contact picture field.  The picture displays correctly.  But the field is 2 x 2 to display the image, and I wonder if the picture could display on the top of the adjacent fields.  How do I set the properties of this image control?  Thank u.

What kind of form is used? Can you upload sample from your DB (without any sensitive data)?

If the picture is displayed on top of the other fields, these will be hidden.
That doesn't make sense to me.

In response to the replies, I am thinking in line of the gadgets, like the calendar or clock, that can be floating on the screen and moved around, or just on top of whatever is on the screen. Thank u

That's popup form. Go to properties of the form and select that option.

Clearly define "on top of"
Another form "On top of the existing form*
Make the image control Bigger to appear "on top of the controls"

Or something else entirely...?
