One can easily do that in Word, by selecting
Tight wrap for a picture placed in the footer. But for several reasons I do not wish to migrate my document from LaTeX to Word.
Is it possible to accomplish this in LaTeX? My searches have led me to
shapepar, but what I have found tells me that it is for a single paragraph that I have to format manually, whereas in this scenario I have no previous knowledge which paragraph will be at the bottom to interact with the figure in the footer.
Your thoughts are much appreciated.
