Ok, so it's that time of year again and I have to hand in my dissertation. I'm having one minor issue with LaTeX that I can't seem to fix - it's sticking figures from one section into the text from the second (it's a very figure intensive document). So I'm wondering, is there any way I can force images to appear at the end of the section, before the new one starts?

That sounds peculiar. Are you using a weird graphics package?

Standard LaTeX lets you suggest where the image goes using

(assuming this is how you are placing your figures) - The H is for Here. You can also use T (top) B (bottom) or P (separate Page for all graphics floats).

Another thing to try is to place the figure code close to the text which refers to the figure.

I just cut 'n' pasted this from a previous project, which has always worked for me:

is in the preamble.
Experimentation with available optics led to the use of a rudimentary system which is now described and is shown in Figure~\ref{emiss}.
