Text Wrap Around a Photo

Any object in Illustrator can have text wrapped around it—any object created in Illustrator that is. Just position the object on top of a block of text using the Selection tool (V), and with the object still selected, go to the Object menu and choose Text Wrap>Make. If you want to have text wrap around an odd-shaped, placed raster image (File>Place), you’ll have to create a path around the object. (In our example, we created and exported the path from Photoshop. See Chapter 11 for more details on exporting a path.) Then place your text box on top of the image and path, select just the path, and choose Object>Arrange>Bring to Front so the graphic is below the text and the path is above it. Then choose Object>Text Wrap>Make. In the Text Wrap Options dialog (Object>Text Wrap>Text Wrap Options), enter an Offset amount, and click OK. (Note: This won’t work if your text and image are on different layers.)
