Problems with spacing when inserting images

I have no problem inserting images into my project, however whenever I place them, there is always massive spacing before/after - as if there were 20+ carriage returns. Can anyone suggest a better method of placing my images other than Edit > Insert? I’ve tried jpg’s of both low and high qualities, as well as resizing them inside Scrivener. I know there’s no wrapping features. The amount of blank space between the inserted images and the text renders the overall text extremely difficult to read.
