Ok just saw your question on the forum. So just to understand what you have
done:
1) Go Insert -> Image -> From file...   select the image an image and want
to align it, correct?

Is this image on the page header by any chance?

Right clicking on the image will show you the Picture dialog box, on the
Anchor section it will list you different options:
1) To Page
2) To Paragraph
3) To Character
4) As character

This will help you arange your image more precise according to your needs.
When you find the closest please use the Position criteria to adjust it in
relation with the other objects of the document, like text, other images,
or page.

Here is more information on how to work yourself around the document.
