Feather effect and adding photographs to map?

Hello,

I've been playing around with the feathering effect as outlined in this tutorial:

I think it looks great. What i am now thinking is that it might be nice to add some photographs to some of the white areas fading from the map and then back into a photgraph if that makes sense.

Can anyone suggest a way to go about this? For example I was thinking about including a photo with a bird. If i created a polygon by digitising around the bird and then did the feathering would this work?

Ive tried to add a .jpg to the map window and this works but I cant move it to the correct position. How do i get it to move around the screen?

Thanks for any help! :)
