How To Lock An Image In Google Docs

One of the main problems a user encounters when creating a document that includes both text and images is how the location of the image moves when the content does. This makes it very difficult to optimize the document’s structure practically.
The document appears disorganized and sloppy as a result of the constantly shifting uploaded image and text updates.  In Google Docs, you may lock a picture in a certain location so that it remains there even if the text is changed, relocated, or even removed. This makes it possible for the user to navigate the text as needed without being concerned about how it might effect the placement of the uploaded image.

We are looking at how you can lock an image in Google docs in this guide.
