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 October 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.
Here is a short gif showing the process:
Choose Menu -> Insert -> Drawing.
Drag/Drop, Ctrl-V or right-click and paste in your image.
Click the "Textbox" button near the top.
Draw the textbox underneath your image, add some text.
Set the lettering font/format with the "more" button upper left.
You can paste the image into Insert>Drawing, and then add a textbox underneath it and save that. However, there is no way of automatically captioning an image, which I think is a problem that needs to be solved.
You can put in a text box in if you insert the image as a drawing.
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: https://web.archive.org/web/20141013025810/http://chromebookandroidnews.wordpress.com:80/2014/09/08/how-to-caption-and-wrap-text-around-images-or-tables-in-google-docs/
