Hello! 🙂  I am new to InDesign.  I imported an image to my doc in InDesign, and the image seems to be connected to another image such that I cannot move one without moving the other.  

 

Please see image in the attached photo.  The center heartrate monitor image is connected to the solid aqua background rectangle.  So, when I try to move the heartrate monitor image the solid aqua background rectangle moves with it.  

 

None of the other images are linked to the background rectangle in this way.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks!!

and the image seems to be connected to another image No: it is because the heartrate monitor image is imported in a frame which is bigger than the image itself, and this frame has a blue background. Use the white arrow to move the picture inside its frame, or if you prefer, reduce the size of the frame with this icon and create the blue background with a separate empty frame.
