You need to move the closing tag to the android:layout_alignParentbelow="@+id/EditText line.

<ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imageView1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
        android:src="@drawable/grumpy_cat" 
        android:layout_alignParentbelow="@+id/EditText"/>
