Since then I noticed that you can even use this trick without changing 
the grid size (and hence without the need to use any special 
stationery) simply because with any kind of grid on, once you have 
pulled the JPEG onto a grid point, it is very quick and easy to drag 
it to the origin (which is also a grid point). The advantage of the 
stationery method is that you can have the grid switched on in the 
stationery document.
