For a start, it's nothing to with kile but LaTeX, which you do presumably
run at some point.

Second it is indeed correct: the whole point of LaTeX is that it does the
type-setting for you and therefore puts the figure in the best place it
finds for it.  If this is not what you want/need then maybe you don't
want/need LaTeX.

Anyway, this should get you what you appear to want:

bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla
Image bla:
\clearpage
\begin{figure}[htbp]\center
\includegraphics[width=0.55\textwidth]{image.eps }
\caption{Some image that fill the entire page}\end{figure}
\clearpage
ble ble ble ble
ble ble ble ble

Maybe it would help a little if you had a quick read of one of the many
introductory manuals available on-line or within the LaTeX distrinution.
