If you can click on the image and see outline grabs. Do so
and then choose Order from the Arrange drop down menu and
choose Bring to Front.

Publisher >> cant see pictures in publisher 2003 Where are you getting the picture? If you inserted the picture from the Office
ClipArt site or any other web page it could be your cache is full, in IE, tools,
Internet Options, delete files. Once you cleared your cache, if the image does not
show up, go back and insert it again.

Have you tried updating your video drivers?

Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 and older are critical about video drivers.
Usually upgrading (or downgrading in some cases) will fix the problems you
are encountering.

I would recommend is restarting your computer in 'Safe Mode'. To get to Safe
Mode, restart your computer and press "F8" at the beginning of the boot
process. Once prompted, choose 'Safe Mode'. Once in 'Safe Mode', attempt the
same procedure with Microsoft Publisher.

If the publication works, then we will now assume the problem lies within
your video driver. Restart your computer.

If you have not already done so, you would want to visit the manufacturers
website of your video driver to download and install the latest video driver
that is available. It's important to note that the CD-Rom that came with
your video card will most likely NOT have the most recent driver for your
video adapter.

Popular Video Driver Sites:

-----------------------------
Nvidia
http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?PAGE=drivers

ATI
http://mirror.ati.com/support/driver.html

Voodoo
http://www.voodoofiles.com/
----------------------------

Search for the video driver that represents the model that you are using and
download the driver. To determine which card you have:

1. Right Click on your Desktop
2. Go to Properties
3. Go to the Settings Tab
4. Click on Advanced

Search for the video driver that represents the make and model that you are
using and download that driver. I would make sure you select "Save" when
prompted for download, not "Run". Typically many save to My Documents.

After you download the driver begin the setup. Use the following procedure
to change your video driver:

1. Right click anywhere on your Desktop, and choose Properties.
2. This will open Display Properties. Choose the "Settings" tab
3. Click on the "Advanced Properties" Button
4. On the "Adapter" Tab, Choose "Change"
5. Now you should see "Select Device". If your new driver is listed, select
that model.
6. If not, choose "Have Disk", and browse to the location where you setup
the new driver.
7. Now choose "OK". Be sure to have you Windows CD available, as you may be
prompted for this.
8. After setup and install is complete, restart your computer.

This should fix your troubles. If not, either contact your video card
manufacturer directly and inform them of the problem you have experienced,
or turn down your hardware acceleration. This will be at least a possible
temporary fix until you get a response from the tech support from your video
card manufacturer. The steps to turn down your hardware acceleration are as
follows:

1. Right click on "My Computer"
2. Choose "Properties"
3. On System Properties choose the "Performance" Tab
4. Under advanced settings, choose "Graphics"
5. Change hardare acceleration to "None"
6. Choose OK and OK again
7. Restart computer

(You don't necessarily have to go all the way to None. You could try one
notch at a time, but that will require a restart for each notch).
