This is good advice. Come on over.

TeXShop is just a front end to TeX, and MacTeX installs the standard
TeX Live,  the reference distribution of TeX for most platforms. Thus
the answer to your question is the standard answer on most platforms nowadays.

1) In the header


2) To insert a graphic, something like

	\begin{figure}[htbp] % figure placement: here, top, bottom, or page 
		 \caption{example caption} 

The crucial command here is "includegraphics." If you are using pdfLaTeX,
graphics can be pdf, jpg, png, and TeX will automatically convert eps files
to pdf.
