I think @Caitlin_M is talking about what I'd call a "true wrap" that is where you pull a photo into a text block. It does seem like there is no problem positionoin it left or right, but it does have to be at the top of the text. So for instance, if you want to have a headline that goes the full width of the block, then some text wrapping around a photo, you have to create a separate text block for the headline. This, by the way, is a rather common format for newsletters, which Constant Contact seems to be unaware of. Having to have multiple blocks to make a chunk of copy is not only time consuming and prone to error when you start moving around the pieces of what should really be one block to work with, but ALSO, because we are given no control over how much space there is between thos multiple blocks it's hard to even make it look good. Then, there is a separate problem of the "layout blocks" that have a column of text and a "column" with a photo. There's no styles you can apply in those layout blocks to control whether the "photo side" will be on the left or right, and to make it even more annoying, the thumbnails don't all reflect what the actual structure of the layout block is. This may not matter on most phones, where Constant Contact forces the photo to run full width, rather than next to the text, but some of us (maybe even most of us who do newsletters) still have a way larger share of subscribers using the desktop view than mobile.
