When inserting an image into a Google Document, text can be made to wrap around the image by clicking on it and choosing the "Wrap Text" option. How can I also add a caption to the image, with text still wrapped around the image and caption?

As of 10-25-2013, Google Documents does not support text wrapping around tables, so inserting a table and putting an image and a caption in it will work but cannot be made to have text wrapped around it.

One workaround is that since text can wrap around images, we can choose Insert > Drawing... and create a drawing with the text we want to caption the image with. The resulting drawing can be changed to have text wrapped around it, and can then be placed beneath the image we inserted.

He is the OP, and tables are a suggested work around. –  Catskul Jan 20 at 18:58

I note you have not accepted your own answer, so here is an alternative (a mixture of an image and a table):

This can be done by using the Insert -> Drawing option. Here is a guide on how to do add a caption and wrap text around an image or a table: http://chromebookandroidnews.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/how-to-caption-and-wrap-text-around-images-or-tables-in-google-docs/
