Using image points to align meters?

Get help using Construct 2

So, until now; I've been positioning all of my meter overlays by hand like this.


Is there some way (possibly using image points?) to automatically align (and precisely) the meters to the graphics their being overlaid in instead of doing it by hand, without the potential for error?

Make an image point on the graphic where you want it to go, then every tick -> meter -> set position to object graphic imagepoint whatever.

Is that all or is it more complex than that?
