Text Block vs. Image Block vs. Free Form Block

To add one of these blocks, drag it over from the Blocks pane on the left into your message. If you are using a layout, click on the layout content region where you want to add a content block. Then, in the left pane on the Blocks tab, click the block that you want to use and drag it into place:

To wrap the text around the image, select the image and then use one of the alignment buttons left justify to move the image. The text will wrap around the image accordingly. Note: Outlook will not wrap text; instead, it will start the first line of text right after the image. Get more info about image wrapping in this OIT article.
