If you don't need captions, you could write

\includegraphics[width=2in]{example1.jpg} \\
Some Text\\
\includegraphics[width=2in]{example2.jpg} \\
\includegraphics[width=2in]{example3.jpg} \\
\includegraphics[width=2in]{example4.jpg}

i.e. the image is not part of a float environment like in

\begin{figure}[htbp] %  figure placement: here, top, bottom, or page
\centering
\includegraphics[width=2in]{example.jpg}
\caption{example caption}
\label{fig:example}
\end{figure}
