If you want to wrap text around an image in Google Docs as you see in newspapers, then this tutorial will help you. It is useful when you need to customize a document that has simple pictures and large paragraphs of text. For your information, you do not need to install an add-on or use any third-party service.
Google Docs is a feature-rich alternative to Microsoft Word, and it allows you to do almost everything possible in the desktop app. If you are making a document, and you need to add a couple of images, there are several ways to do that. It is possible to show the image on the left or right side instead of the middle of the page. However, there is another trick that you can use to display text around the image. It looks different, fancy, and something like newspapers.
Before getting started, you should know that the image size would be smaller. As you are wrapping text around the image, you may not want to use a big resolution image and text side by side.
