Are there layout limitations with Website builder that can not be overcome?

I would like to offer websites build by Odoo Website builder to our customers, and we have tested the builder ourselves for this purpose. We have found the following limitations that seem to ably to at least novice users:

- it seems to be impossible to get two pictures or picture and text to go partially over each other?

- it seems to be really hard often to get the picture to certain position / layout may give some restrictions which are hard to understand (for example margins on page are technically there to limit position, but only "visible" by the fact that content doesn't want to go there..)

Is is possible to overcome some of or all of these limitations by working with Odoo professionals / themers? Or are all websites that are composed with Odoo limited in some certain ways via layout (even if we pay for someone to implement a design by our designer)?

All depend of what component snippet are you trying to use and how are you trying to use it. All html components have their own limitations regarded of where it can be placed and some non documented rules of course. But with your own css and using odoo development features for the odoo website you could do anything. If you just wanna put an image exactly over another one I think that that could be do it b simply moving that specific component using the move tool that appear when you select a component that is composed by 4 arrows pointing to the edges of an invisible square. Also all of the possible css options are not covered but it is possible to add it what you want using snippet options and animations

The Odoo website builder is based on the bootstrap responsive grid framework. Depending on the website theme you have installed, you have different snippets/building blocks available. You can also customize your website using the built-in HTML editor or you can build your own snippets and layouts. More information here: https://www.odoo.com/documentation/10.0/howtos/website.html
