Right out of the box, every image inserted into a Google Docs page will be arranged by line so they won’t overlap each other. But in many cases, overlapping images are necessary; take a Venn diagram as an example.

Luckily, Google Docs lets you place part of an image on top or behind another image. This is known as ‘text wrapping’ and it’s indeed very useful for arranging an image with text, and also between images too.

Here’s how to overlap two, three, or more images in Google Docs easily.

1. First, go to Insert > Image to embed images to the document.
