Display Order
Select an image in the list and press the ^ v keys on the left side to move the image up or down the display order. Image are displayed from top to bottom, so the last image will appear 'on top'.

The slider displays and changes the selected image.
Move towards 100% to make the image more transparent so you can see the images 'underneath'.

ESRI Georeferencing File
The filename will be based on the image filename and the file will be saved in the same folder as the image file.
Thus if the image file is 'C:\data\test\1117750_small.jpg', the georeferencing file will be created as 'C:\data\test\1117750_small.jgw'.

The contents of the world file will look similar to this:


When this file is present, ESRI ArcView performs the image-to-world transformation. The image-to-world
transformation is a six-parameter affine transformation in the form of

x1 = Ax + By + C
y1 = Dx + Ey + F
