I have created a document in Word 2016. My title page is horizontally and vertically centered, with a section break (next page). I have pictures that I want to put on my title page, above and below the title. Everything works fine as long as I keep the picture(s) ABOVE the centered title and section break line. If I drag the picture below the title/section break, the text starts moving upward. I have tried every type of text wrapping and positioning option I can think of, to no avail. I don't want to have to use hard returns and page break to accomplish this.
Have you tried placing them in the Header area? They would be anchored in the header area and you would place a wrapping attribute for them to appear behind the text.
