If you are not willing to use typoscript thre is another way using CSS.
When you add an image, you also get an option to add caption for the image.

Thus after typo3 renders your image, you will get the image wrapped 
inside <dt> tag.
so it will be something like this:
<div class="csc-textpic csc-textpic-xxx csc-textpic-xxx">
<div class="csc-textpic-imagewrap">
      <dt><img /></dt>
      <dd>caption text</caption>

If you play a little with CSS, then you surely can get something to match.

Well, text and image rotation are not possible though.
