I have inserted a JPG file into a Writer document. I right-click on

That sounds as if you use the wrong tool. The purpose of the contour
is to set parts of the picture to transparent and allow text to float

"Spacing" in the dialog page "Wrap" in the property dialog of the

Thanks. That got me part way there.

The picture is aligned to the paragraph at the right border of the
page and is about half the width of the page. I needed to add space
around the bottom and the left edges. I added six points to the bottom
and it moved the caption down correctly, but did not move the text
below the caption. I added points to the left and the text did not move
at all until I added 20 points, and then the picture suddenly re-scaled
to half its original size. Apparently I am in a setting for moving the
caption, not the text around the picture.
