Floating above a sticky footer?

So I'm having a problem and it's likely my lack of HTML skillz. Hopefully someone here can help.
I'm running Wordpress with Atahualpa and I've set the footer to be sticky on short pages. I have a handful of images which I'd like to have float just above the footer. My footer has a color background and my images have a white background. The space above the footer is white. I've currently placed the code for the images in the footer content box. It looks like this: <span style="background-color: #ffffff; position: absolute; left: 50%; bottom: 85px; width: 720px; margin-left: -365px; padding: 5px;"> images </span>

This makes the images float above the footer but when I resize the window they move up or down. I'd like to have them stay put just above the footer. I tried putting them in the post footer but that only spans one column. I'd like the images to span the site width. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

one solution would be to edit footer.php and add a new <div>...</div> right after the line
HTML Code:
<td id="footer" colspan="<?php echo $cols; ?>">
and put your images there

You could also perhaps add a new widget area to the footer and put your images there.
