Okay, I'm now eating my hat. I checked InDesign and... tada, I can 
press up/down cursors when I'm in the measurements fields and the 
image does indeed move.

But. Why would anyone do it like that? If I'm looking at a photo of a 
girl I want to move the image so her hair is just the 'right' 
distance from the top of the page. How will I know? I'll just know. 
And I'll be looking at the image when I know, not the palette.

Humble pie for pudding?
