Why did you place them in that place on screen? I placed the image up near the top of the page because this space was initially left black; it also is easier to see at the top of the page rather than the bottom. How does user interact with form? The user can easily interact with the form using their mouse. They can click on drop-down boxes to display options to choose from, and they can also click on text boxes to begin typing in them. Generally using their mouse and keyboard they can click and type to fill out the entire form, before clicking on the submit button.
