How do I make text wrap around images?

  • First import your image into InDesign. Then go to Window / Text Wrap. When you click that last button a palette should pop up that has text wrap options. The basic text wrap options are also available in the standard toolbar at the top of the screen near the right.
  • Select your image and look at the top of the text wrap palette. There are a few text wrap options displayed as square buttons. The button at the very left is what you currently have (which is no wrap at all). With your object selected, click the second button from the left.
  • If you haven’t already done so, drag your object up into the text you want it to sit in. You’ll see that the text wraps around the object! You can move your object around as much as you want and the wrap will stay constant; you can resize your image and the wrap distance will stay constant. Play with the size and placement of your object until you’re happy with it and try some of the other text wrap options by just clicking on the appropriate button.
