How to place a picture behind text in Word

To make your picture or graphic sit behind the text on a page in Word, you need to change the text wrapping properties of the picture. There is more than one way to do this (isn't there always?). This is how to do it using a right click on your mouse.

Word 2007
Picture - RIGHT click on the picture and select "Text wrapping". Click on "Behind Text"

Shape - RIGHT click on the shape and select "Format autoshape". Click on the Layout tab and choose Behind Text.
Word 2003/XP/2000
Right click on picture, choose format picture, click on layout tab and choose behind text.

Once the picture is behind all of the text, how do you select it again if you can't find the borders in order to click it?
