# [OS X TeX] How to Insert Graphics Using TeXShop?

I have been able to successfully center the .eps files in my document,
but a couple more questions have arisen.  First, the figures in my
document don't seem to be integrated into the text of the document.  The
figures seem to be placed at the end of the document, which is
undesired.  Secondly, with the \caption{} command I get a label Figure
1: plus whatever I put within the braces {}.  My first question in
regards to this would be is there a way to decrease the vertical spacing
between the actual figure and the Figure caption itself?  Secondly, is
there a way to have the numbering so that I can have Figure 2.1, rather
than Figure 1?

Thanks,
