If I got your issue right, then you can achieve this with small trick in CSS, you can have the <img> with position:absolute and make it fit the container droppable<div> then it will be something like this, also note that I removed helper.clone.

Update: draggble with resizable, note that I added css for .ui-visual-focus<div> and I enforced position absolute so that it will not push down the droppable area.

$(function () {
  $('.draggable').draggable({
    revert: "invalid",
    stack: ".draggable"
  }).resizable();
  $('.droppable').droppable({
    accept: ".draggable",
  });
});
img {
  width: 300px;
  height: auto;
  position:absolute;
  left:0px;
  top:0px;
  z-index:-1;
}

.ui-visual-focus {
  position:absolute !important;
  width: 100px;
  height: 30px;
}

.image-container {
  top: 20px;
  position:relative;
  width:300px;
  max-height: 200px;
  border:1px solid;
  height:200px;
}
<link rel="stylesheet" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.1/themes/base/jquery-ui.css">

<div>
    <div class="ui-visual-focus draggable" style="width:100px;">
        Textbox
    </div>
    <br />
    <div class="image-container droppable">

    </div>
</div>
