To force it to be "here", you can say Code: \begin{figure}[!h] Warning: micromanaging your document leads to a major loss in efficiency and work hours. Generally it is better to let LaTeX decide where to put the text and figures and focus your energy on just referring to the picture in right place of the text (and to the subject itself).
