Text frames cannot contain images and image frames cannot contain text, 
so at the least you're talking about two frames, I guess an image frame 
on top of the larger text frame.
Be sure to indicate Text Flows Around Frame in the Shape tab of 
Properties for the image frame. Either frame or both can have a border 
-- just make the line color (Colors in Properties) something other than 

Once you have a combination you like, if you will repeatedly use the 
same size frames, you can Group them then copy and paste group, then 
change text content and image file -- this way all your settings remain 
the same for the frames, the text, the image. Or save a group of empty 
frames in Scrapbook.
