When you first insert an image into a document, Docs assumes that you want that image to be inline. This means that the image appears wherever the insertion point was located when the image was first inserted and is treated almost like another letter or number in the text.
Most of the time, though, you will probably want the image to be treated differently than text. For instance, if the image doesn't extend from margin to margin, you may want the rest of the text on the page to wrap around the image. Here's how to instruct Docs to do just that:
Figure 1. A palette of commands appears below a selected image.
Docs immediately changes how the image is handled and wraps any text possible around the image. It also changes the options in the command palette so that you can, if desired, modify how much space (margin) should be left between the image and the surrounding text. (See Figure 2.)
Figure 2. You can, if desired, modify the margin that Docs leaves around the image.
When you are satisfied with how the text wraps around the image, click somewhere in your document other than on the image itself. You can then continue editing, as normal.
