May be the image is in background, use the navigator [F5] - Menu/View/Navigator - Sidebar, to select the image with double click.

Thanks for the solution; but it's led to a related problem - the Navigator shows there are some 80+ images in the file, and most of them are named "Picture 1". Double-clicking on one in the Navigator image list does select an image, but then immediately moves the Navigator list to the bottom, so I can no longer see the image name I just selected, and it becomes very difficult to keep track of which "Picture 1" I just selected, and scroll all the way back to the same spot in the list. Ideas?

This does not work. I can see "Navigator" and I think I have my image because Calc scrolls to it. But the image is not selected. There are no selection marks around the image, and when I press "del" whatever cell was previously selected is cleared and the image remains. So as best as I can tell, Navigator does not actually select the image. I've tried versions 5.4 and 6.0.
