In Lyx I'm using float figures.

I have to put three pictures one after the other, so three different float figures.

When I output a pdf, the floats all appear at the top of three different pages.

Why is this happening?

As you already mention, figures are considered "floats", so they move around in your document. If you don't want them to float, then you need consider other choices. How big are these figures? If you don't want them at the location they're appearing now, what is the desired layout? – Werner Aug 31 '12 at 22:22
If you don't need them as floats, just do Insert > Graphics in LyX. – scottkosty Sep 1 '12 at 2:11

Document -> Setting ... Float Placement
