Ok, I hope the title is descriptive enough, as I have no idea how one does call what I am about to ask lol

Here's what I want: 2 paragraphs with one picture for each one

I want a picture to be part of the textflow so that its position changes automatically depending on how much text comes above / below the picture. However the pictures are supposed to be next to the text, not above: example of what I do not want

How would I go about that? Something with drop-caps maybe? I am rather clueless :(

You could offset the images using Object > Anchored Object > Options....

You'll want to set Position to Custom and just make the reference point top right corner. This alone should get you quite close, but you can also adjust x and y offsets to fine tune it.

Now before you go and change these settings separately for all the images, I'd urge you to look into Window > Styles > Object styles. In this panel you can create, apply and manage styles easily. Make a new object style and apply this style to all the images you want to adjust and then modify the Anchored Object Options to suit your needs:

  • In my example I had the images in their own rows, but you could also have them sit in the same line with the text. That way you wouldn't (necessarily) need to offset y at all if you set it relative to Cap height + if that line of text flows into a new text frame, the image follows because it is in that same line and you don't have to play with keep options in the paragraph styles.
