[OS X TeX] Making an Image Stay In Place

Have read how to do this in someplace, but cannot find it now.

When placing an image in Latex it "floats" to the next page, centering
itself on the page vertically with page breaks before and after.

It really needs to just stay in line like any other paragraph. What do
I need to do to keep it place when between paragraphs.

Here is more or less what the source looks like:

%start example source

This is the paragraph before the image.

\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\centerline {
\includegraphics[width=144pt]{FileName}
}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

This is the paragraph after the image.

%end example source

Here is how I would like it to print.

This is the paragraph before the image.

IMAGE GOES HERE

This is the paragraph before after image.

Thanks
