Hello,

You can use a feature in Websitebuilder that is labeled as wrap with box. If you single click you mouse, while holding it down, roll over the 2 images that you want to group, right click and select wrap with box, this grouping the images together. 

1. Click your mouse in an open background area and drag it over the two images. (the images will be outlined in gold)



2. Release the mouse, it will display a dotted line around the selected elements. 

3. Right click and choose Wrap With Box. 



4. Click and drag the box with the elements grouped.

No, I need them to stay locked together. They keep moving all around the site and making it look bad.

This feature does combine the two images into one box, locking them together as one element. Elements will only move if they are clicked on and dragged to a new place on the page. There is not a way to lock its position on the page, if that is what you are referring to.

it does not lock the images together and stay together to make one image.

Wrapping the images with box will lock the images together. You can also try placing these images manually into a box. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/websitebuilder-containers

If you want to combine 2 images into a single image you may not be able to do it using your builder. You could use an image editing program or in a pinch try the following.

Arrange the images the way you want them on your screen. Take a screenshot. Crop, edit, etc. the screenshot using Paint or similar program. Be sure to use larger images as they'll look better after editing when you resize the saved image from Paint/other program.

That's a lot of work. so when something sells I just want to add a sold image on it, therefore attaching the 2 images together. Is there another builder to use?
