move clip/image position

I created a background image for my movie.
When i place it in the timeline it's automatically centered.
can i move it up or down somehow?

It should scale the picture to maximize either the height or the width without removing it and padding the neighboring sides with black. This happens when the image aspect does not match the project setting. You can apply the crop filter to remove lines from edges. Do not try to crop the black edges! Rather, you will need to crop the non-black edges in equal amounts until the black edges are gone.
