Below is my personal memoir template. It does not contain any figures but there is nothing special about including them. And of course, you can organize your chapters in separate files, place your figures in separate folders just as you would normally do.


%!TEX TS-program = pdflatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
\usepackage{amsmath, amsthm, amssymb}

%---Begin LaTeX - Memoir customise-----------------------------------------* 
\posttitle{\vskip 0.5em}
\maxsecnumdepth{subsubsection} % number subsections
\hangsecnum              % hang the section numbers
%\renewcommand{\cftchapterfont}{}% no bold!
\pagestyle{plain} %
    %also: empty, plain, headings, myheadings, simple, ruled, Ruled, 
    %also: companion, book, chapter, cleared, part, title, titlepage
	%also: default, section, hangnum, companion, article, reparticle
	%also: bianchi, brighthurst, brotherton, chappell, crosshead, culver, 
	%also: dash, demo2, demo3,  dowdingell, ell, ger, komalke, lyhne, madsen
	%also: ntglike, pederson,  southall, tandh, thatcher, veelo, verville,
