As long as you make sure that the anchored frame containing the image
is selected before you add the callout lines and text, then everything
should work as you expect. I've been using FM's graphics tools to add
callouts to images for a long time and I've never had a problem.

To find out whether the callout lines you added are inside the anchored
frame, select the frame, then press Ctrl+A to select everything inside
the frame. If the graphics are not selected, cut them, then select the
frame again and paste the graphics into the frame.

Is there some good way to put callouts over an image in Frame?

I have been trying to put an image in a table cell, then draw red lines to parts of the image, keeping the lines in the cell, but the lines do not always stay with the image is pagination changes.

Or, the image's red lines do not appear when I go to html. Some do, some don't. Och!

Is there an easy to use tool that lets you add lines and such to an image, so you can import the "whole thing", so it can't move around in Frame? I have tried using ImageReady, since it lets you add, move, and delete arrows without altering the image itself, but frankly I find ImageReady awful to use.
