Hi Rolf,

If I understand you correctly, what you want to do is set Text Flows 
Around Frame to an area larger than the image frame. If that is the 
case, you should set Text Flows to Use Contour Line. Next, click the 
Edit button at the top of the Shape tab, and in the Edit Shapes dialog, 
check the box to edit the contour line rather than the frame.

You can't edit the Bounding Box, at least directly. The Bounding Box 
encompasses the frame and all of its control points. For a rectangle, 
all the control points will be on the frame.
