Code to make an image slide or move to certain spot when scrolling page?

I am trying to find a way to build code to have an image move to a certain spot on a webpage when you scroll the page. So, say I load a page an image shows up at the right of the page, and when you scroll down, the image slides or moves to the middle of the page next to specific text and it stays there.

I have thought of using JavaScript or JQuery, and use the animate and scrolly attributes to try this, something like this: ({“top”:(window.scrollY), but I cannot get it to work right, I also just tried this: if($ (window).scrollTop() with .animate, and still cannot get it to work. Can this be done easier with CSS3 or even HTML5, or is this too choppy or unstable? I want the image to be the top element, this is not a background effect, or anything like that. I just want a regular image to be the top element and then move to a spot with text by just scrolling down the page and then stay there.

Does anyone have an idea of how to go about this? Hopefully I explained myself thoroughly.

Could you provide a basic code of what you mean? I tried this site:

However, I cannot get it to work on my end, and I cannot get it to stay in place of the text when reached. I didn’t think this would have been as difficult as it has been. Driving me nuts.

Personally, since I’m not a jquery guy, I would create a CSS class for it that make sure the z-index is on top and enable fixed positioning so it doesn’t interfere with your other elements, then get a javascript interval going that runs a function that updates the so that it moves slowly or however you want it to.

Alternatively you could use an HTML5 canvas element to position the element in almost the steps,
this would be a little slicker, but a little more difficult and canvas is only supported in newer browsers
