Yes, thats a good idea Chris! 

If you are trying to get an area of blank space around your image frame 
though, what you should be using is the Contour Line.

Set this on the Properties Palette, Shape tab. Text Flows Around Frame, and 
Use Contour Line. Then Edit the shape, select Edit Contour Line, and then if 
all you want is a larger area than the frame, set your % growth over the 
current size and hit the enlarge button.
