Create a specif object style for the images and apply it.
You need to work with paragraph styles. In the paragraph styles for your chapters look into the keep options and let them start on the right page.
Applying an object style to images is a pain in the neck. ID defaults to the None object style for images, no matter what you choose, unless you name the style you want to use Place Gun Frame, and that works only when you create the frame while the image is placed or manually assign the style after creating a placeholder frame.
You could set Text wrap to apply by default by setting it with nothing selected in your document, but that will apply it to ALL new objects including text frames.
Thanks, I'll try it.
Thanks for the suggestions, all.
