The two plans have points that can be aligned for the images to align on separate planes.
Yes, the point will not follow the image if the image move.
Can you attach your model here?
The model wont attach through the reply message window.Also, I need to know how to draw on the sketch itself in Solidworks to make the reference points.
you could use the property distance of x,y to make them parallel/
2D sketch start on a plane.
So for your 2 points, you need 2 planes and 2 sketch.
Convert first point in first sketch to second sketch.

On the side view image place a sketch point on the headlight bezel and add dimensions to it from the Origin.
Adjust the dims to locate the point where required.
For the front view image, first create a plane that's parallel to this view orientation and make it coincident to the point (or in the Equations dialog, set the plane's offset value to the dimension to the point).
Place the front view image on this plane and then hide the plane.
I got the file attached and can you fix a point on the image itself?
Use "fix" constrain on the point.
You cannot constrain to the image.
You can fix the image then make a point and fix the point though?

As Mr. Law stated, you can't "adhere" any sketch elements to an image.
With the sketch on the same plane as the image, place a point entity.
You can then add a "Fix" relation to anchor it where it is, but I recommend adding X/Y dimensions from the origin to the point to locate it.
Dims will essentially "Fix" it where it is, but are easier to adjust if you need to tweek the point's location a little bit.
Also, the point's dimensions are exposed in the Equations dialog in case these are needed to reference something else later on.
Is there an emboss feature and can you share sketches to keep from duplicating the same sketch?
Insert the file with sketches into a new part.
I mean within the same part.
In same part.
Expand the feature and make the sketch visible.
You can reuse it in other feature.
Hide it after you're done.
I insert the part with the sketches I wanted yet the sketches weren't available on the tree. Only showed the solid bodies.
I'll insert the part with sketch only into another part.
Part1 - sketch only (Master Sketch)
Part2 - insert Part1 into Part2
Part3 - insert Part1 into Part3
This is Master Sketch Modeling.
Another way is SSP.
How do you move a whole solid within a part file?
Miranda Brown wrote: How do you move a whole solid within a part file?
Carefully, especially if it is heavy.
There's a tool to move bodies around, it's called Move/Copy Body (the copy part may not work, similar to Move Face Copy Not Working) . Here's something from the help 2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Move/Copy Bodies
Usually part moves in assembly.

Good point Frederick, Miranda Brown may be new to SW... Miranda, if you are new to SW it would do a lot of good if you go to Help>Solidworks Tutorials and go through Introduction to Solidworks, Lesson 1 Parts, Lesson 2 Assemblies and Lesson 3 Drawings.
