I assume you have a text frame with text in it and you have an image frame inside 
this text frame that you want to have the text stop at some distance from the image 

The "correct" way to do this is to select the image frame, use the Properties Pallet, 
select Shape and put a Contour Line or Bounding Box around the image to have the 
text flow around it.
I have never had much success with this. Instead I put a second text frame where I 
want the text to stop, select Shape for this text frame and select the text flow around 
the frame, Use Frame Shape. 

I use Windows but it should work the same on a Mac.
