When you upload an image element to a blank page, it defaults to this position. I actually had to add a text box on top of the image element so I could write this note.
To get these pictures side by side, I had to start out with my first image element looking the way it does above. Then, I dragged a new image element flush up against the right side of the first box. Voila, now they're side by side!
I can keep dragging more and more image elements into a row as I have below, but if I want to display multiple images in a nice, neat way, then I would use a Gallery element instead.
