My "Steve, The Simpleminded" solution would be to design the piece with the image in place then save it, then delete the image before printing, assuming that that doesn't mess up the text flow, which is probably a bad assumption.

Or design the piece with the image in place, then before printing, add another shape the same color as the background, with no outline, big enough to cover the image, then send it backward until it covers the image but nothing that sits atop the image (ie, the text).

That gets problematic if your background's not a solid color; there's no Background fill option for shapes as there is in some other Office programs.

You could also insert a Freeform shape, create it so that it follows the outline of the part of the picture you want text to wrap around, then have the text wrap around the freeform rather than the picture (which you'd delete). Finally, when ready to print, give the freeform no fill, no outline ... iow, make it invisible.
