Given the output of the \centerline' command, I guess that the inlining of an
image inside a line of text is not supported as is by Org. I can second such a
choice.

For such an effect, then, you still have a solution: simply write a chunk of
LaTeX code in your Org file.

I'm not really aware of the \centerline' command in LaTeX. It's true that, in
order to center, the most commonly usages are:

- the \centering' command, to be put inside a group, or

- the center' environment -- but this is generally considered as evil, as it

That's right that I generally would also like to have all figures exported as
floats (or, at least, that such a decision would not just depend on the
presence or absence of a label/caption).
