Wrap Text in Google Docs

When you upload any image in Google Docs, it appears In line with the text by default. But when you need to wrap the text around the image, use the wrapping option. You can also change the image margins, position, size, and rotation.

In this tutorial, we will look at the steps to wrap the text around the image and its image options.

What is Text Wrapping?

Text wrapping refers to wrapping the text along with the boundaries of the image and other objects, such as shapes in your document. It also saves the space around the image with the text below, above, and to the sides of it. There are different options for text wrapping in Google Docs: in-line, break text, behind text, and in front of the text.

Steps to Wrap the Text

You need to follow the below steps to wrap the text in Google Docs.

Insert the Image

  1. First, open the new or existing Google Docs document and place the cursor between the text to insert the Image.
  2. Afterward, go to Insert, hover over the cursor to Image, and select Upload from the computer.
  3. Click on the image to see the menu bar with multiple options at the bottom.
  4. Here, select the Image Options from the three horizontal dots, and the pop-up appears on the right side of the page.

Size and rotation

  1. To change the size of the image, adjust the figures (in centimeters) of the width and height.
  2. To rotate it by 90 degrees, click on the 90 degrees angle.

Text Wrapping

  • On the Image options, click the Text wrapping and select the Wrap text style to wrap the text around the image.
  • Next, in the Wrap text category, you can wrap the image on both sides, left or right.
  • You can also change the margins of the image from the text like top, bottom, left, or right.


To change the position of the image, click on the position options.

  • When you click on the position, you have two options to choose from: either the image moved with the text or fix the position of the image on the page.

Move with text: When you apply it, the position of the image will adjust itself as you add or delete the text around it.

Fix position on the page: It means the adding or deleting of the text will not have any effect on the position of the image as it remains fixed on the page.

  • To move the image to the left or right, use the X-axis; through the Y-axis, you can move it to the top or bottom (in centimeters).
  • Click on the Quick Layouts options to change the layout of the image from left to center to right or top and bottom.


The best thing is you can pick any other color for your image if you want to from the Re-color drop-drop.


It helps you to change the opacity, brightness, and contrast of the selected image.
