Can you split it into multiple sentences? Something like this, maybe:

"Choose a point at which to insert the photos. In the photo directly
below that insertion point, right-click and select Paste Photo(s)."

One nice thing about doing it that way is that you've smoothly defined a useful new concept -- "insertion point" -- which you can then use in any instructions that follow.
