Formatting captions and subcaptions in LaTeX

The captions for figures, tables, subfigures and subtables in LaTeX can be customized in various ways using the caption and subcaption packages. You can change the fonts, numbering style, alignment and format of the captions and the caption labels. A basic article class document has figure and subfigure captions that look like this:

Default caption look for a basic article

The letters and numbers (“a”, “b” and “1”) that enumerate the captions and subcaptions are caption labels. In the above, the subfigure caption label is enclosed by parentheses and the figure caption label is separated from the caption text by a colon. This page will go over a few examples of how to change these and other aspects of the captions, including the numbering or lettering style (arabic, alphabetical or Roman numerals), the caption position and how to get captions with no label (i.e. no number and no letter).

The examples on this page use the \caption and \subcaption packages. I also have an older page which has examples using the deprecated subfig package. It is recommended to use the examples on this page; the older page is kept for reference and previous reader comments.

Getting started

To use the examples in this page, you will need the caption package and also the subcaption package (if you are working with subfigures or subtables):

\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}

For reference, the code that produces the figure shown in the introduction is:

\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption 1}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption 2}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Main figure caption}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

The label commands allow you to generate a cross-reference in the text to the figure. The label commands assigns a name that you can reference later, which will automatically be filled with the figure or subfigure number or letter. See the section on cross references.

To create a table with two subtables, the code is very similar, except you can replace the figure environment with table and subfigure with subtable:

\begin{table}	
	\centering
	\begin{subtable}[t]{2in}
		\centering
		\begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|}
		\hline
		100 & 200 & 300\\
		\hline
		400 & 500 & 600\\
		\hline
		\end{tabular}
		\caption{Caption 1}\label{table:1a}
	\end{subtable}
	\quad
	\begin{subtable}[t]{2in}
		\centering
		\begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|}
		\hline
		100 & 200 & 300\\
		\hline
		400 & 500 & 600\\
		\hline
		\end{tabular}
		\caption{Caption 2}\label{table:1b}
	\end{subtable}
	\caption{Main table caption}\label{table:1}
\end{table}

Both subfigure and subtable environments allow you to specify their width. This controls how much space is “reserved” for their contents. You can replace the width with \columnwidth to make it the column width of your document. Other values are possible.

Set caption label numbering style

You can change the numbering or lettering style of the caption label by using variants of the following commands in your document:

% change the style of the caption numbering.
\renewcommand{\thetable}{\alph{table}}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\Alph{table}}
\renewcommand{\thesubtable}{\Roman{subtable}}
\renewcommand{\thesubfigure}{\arabic{subfigure}}

Each command specifies the label you want to modify (e.g. \thetable) and what you want to appear as the label (e.g. \alph{table}, which means to show the table counter as a lower case letter like a, b, c, etc.). Each type of float has its own label (\thetable) and counter variable (table). Anything that appears after you issue these commands will have the new label numbering / lettering style.

There are five ways you can show the counters (replace counter with the actual counter you want to show, such as table):

Counter styleCodeExample
Arabic numerals\arabic{counter}1, 2
Lower case letters\alph{counter}a, b
Upper case letters\Alph{counter}A, B
Lower case Roman numerals\roman{counter}i, ii
Upper case Roman numerals\Roman{counter}I, II

Here is an example of changing the figure and subfigure caption label numbering / lettering:

\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\Roman{figure}}
\renewcommand{\thesubfigure}{\arabic{subfigure}}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Arabic numerals}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Arabic numerals}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Capital Roman numerals}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

The above produces Arabic numerals for the subfigure captions and upper case Roman numerals for the figure caption:

Arabic subfigure captions, Roman figure caption.

If your document has chapters, then the caption labels would be something like 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, etc. You can customize the numbering or lettering style in these cases. For example:

% This applies if you have chapters
 
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\thechapter.\Alph{figure}} % set caption label style to 1.A
\renewcommand{\thesubfigure}{\arabic{subfigure}}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Arabic numerals}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Arabic numerals}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Chapter number dot figure letter}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

This code would produce:

Setting caption numbering and lettering style with chaptered documents

The output differs from a standard caption in that the figure label is now a capital letter rather than a number. The subcaptions are also using arabic numerals. You can also change the period to another character if you want.

The \thechapter command produces the chapter label, just like \thefigure produces the figure label. By including \thechapter in the \thefigure command, you can reference the chapter in the figure label.

If you want to change the style of the chapter labels, you can in fact override the \thechapter command just as you override the \thefigure command. Alternatively, if you want to change the style of the chapter labels only for figure labels, you can do this:

\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\Alph{chapter}.\Alph{figure}}

The above examples were all using figures or subfigures, but the same ideas apply for tables and subtables. Just use \thetable and \thesubtable instead of \thefigure and \thesubfigure and use the table and subtable counters instead of figure and subfigure.

Caption package options and captionsetup

The \caption package allows many other aspects of the caption to be modified, via either the \captionsetup command or in the package options. These include the type of label separator (e.g. the colon in “Figure 1: Caption”), the label format (whether the number or letter is shown and whether it is shown in parentheses), the label and caption text font and style, the justification of the captions and many others.

To use these options, you can either set them when you first include the package:

% options apply to all captions
\usepackage[OPTIONS]{caption}
 
% applies to all subfigure and subtable captions
\usepackage[OPTIONS]{subcaption}

When you specify the options in the \usepackage command, they apply to all the captions or subcaptions in the document.

Alternatively, you can use the \captionsetup command within the document so that all subsequent captions have the desired properties:

\captionsetup[FLOAT_TYPE]{OPTIONS}

FLOAT_TYPE can be table, figure, subtable and subfigure and specifies what type of caption that particular \captionsetup command applies to, so you can set different options for each of the figure, table, subfigure and subtable floats individually.

When you use the \captionsetup command in your document, all subsequent captions will use the options you specify. Alternatively, you can put the \captionsetup within a figure, table, subfigure or subtable environment and it will apply only within that environment.

There are several examples that follow which show the types of things that can be configured with the package options or the \captionsetup command. The examples here are not an exhaustive listing; there are many other things you can do, so it would be worthwhile to read the caption package documentation.

Caption justification and font

The following example demonstrates \captionsetup commands that set the caption label font and the caption text font for the figures and subfigures. It also shows how to change the alignment of the subcaptions under the subfigure.

% for figures: caption label is italic, the caption text is bold / italic
\captionsetup[figure]{labelfont=it,textfont={bf,it}}
% for subfigures: caption label is bold, the caption text normal.
% justification is raggedright (i.e. left aligned)
% singlelinecheck=off means that the justification setting is used even when the caption is only a single line long. 
% if singlelinecheck=on, then caption is always centered when the caption is only one line.
\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelfont=bf,textfont=normalfont,singlelinecheck=off,justification=raggedright}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption}\label{fig:1a}
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Main figure caption.}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

The effect is shown here:

Caption font and justification can all be changed with the captionsetup commands

Note that the subcaptions are left aligned under the subfigure, and the font styles have all changed:

The figure caption labels is italic, the caption text is bold and italic. The subfigure label is bold, the text is normal and it is aligned left. As explained in the code block, singlelinecheck is turned off so that even short, one line captions use the justification setting. Otherwise, it will always be centered.

You can also set up the above options for all captions and subcaptions by using the appropriate options when you include the caption and subcaption packages:

% will apply to all captions
\usepackage[labelfont=it,textfont={bf,it}]{caption}
 
% will apply to all subcaptions
\usepackage[labelfont=bf,textfont=normalfont,singlelinecheck=off,justification=raggedright]{subcaption}

Label format and label separator

If you look at the captions, you can see that the subfigure labels are surrounded by parentheses and a colon separates “Figure 1” from the rest of the caption.

Default caption look for a basic article

Both of these aspects (the label format and the label separator) can be customized by options in the caption package. The label format controls how the label shows up: whether it is visible at all, appears plainly or enclosed by parentheses. The label separator is simply the character that appears after the label.

This is the format of the \captionsetup command to set the labelformat and labelsep options:

\captionsetup[FLOAT_TYPE]{labelformat=simple, labelsep=colon}

FLOAT_TYPE can be table, figure, subtable and subfigure. The labelformat option can be set to:

Label FormatResult
labelformat = emptyNo label is shown - i.e. no number or letter
labelformat = simpleShows number or letter in caption
labelformat = parensShows number or letter in caption in parentheses - i.e. (1), (A)

The labelsep option can be set to:

Label Separator
labelsep = none
labelsep = colon
labelsep = period
labelsep = space
labelsep = quad
labelsep = newline

Here is an example where the labelformat and labelsep for the figure caption and subfigure caption are changed individually:

% set up labelformat and labelsep for figure
\captionsetup[figure]{labelformat=parens, labelsep=newline}
% set up labelformat and labelsep for subfigure
\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=simple, labelsep=colon}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Simple}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Simple}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Parentheses, newline separator.}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

The above code produces:

The effect of setting labelformat and labelsep

The labelformat of the subfigure captions is set to simple, which produces only the caption letter without parentheses. The labelsep is colon for subfigure captions and a newline for the figure.

Subfigure and subtable captions with no number or letter

By setting the labelformat option to “empty” in your \captionsetup commands or in the \subcaption package options, you can disable the display of the number or letter label in subfloats. Here is an example that produces subfigures with no caption numbering or lettering:

% no subfigure caption label.
\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=empty}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{No caption label}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{No caption label}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Main figure caption.}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

The above code produces:

Subfigures with no label; Figures with capital letter label in parentheses

As you can see, there is no bloody A, B, C or D!

The same command applies for subtables, tables and figures (just make the appropriate substitution in the captionsetup command).

For figures and tables, which appear in the List of Figures or List of Tables, setting the label format to empty will simply prevent the display of the number or letter in the figure or table caption itself. The letter or number will still appear in the List of Figures or List of Tables.

No caption number for figures and tables

You can disable the caption number for figures and tables by using the \caption* command:

\begin{figure}[tbp]
	\centering	
	\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
	\caption*{Unnumbered figure caption.}
\end{figure}

The code will produce this:

Unnumbered figure

The \caption* command will produce a caption that has no label or number at all and will not appear in the List of Figures.

Set caption position for subfigures and subtables

For regular floats such as tables and figures, the caption position can be set to above or below the float by simply issuing the caption command above or below the float contents. The same applies for subfigures and subtables:

\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\caption{Caption 1}\label{fig:2a}
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}				
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\caption{Caption 2}\label{fig:2b}
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Main figure caption.}\label{fig:2}
\end{figure}

The result is this:

Subfigure caption is placed on top of subfloat using a captionsetup command.

A table and subtable example

This example shows the above techniques with a table that has two subtables:

% set numbering style
\renewcommand{\thetable}{\Roman{table}}
\renewcommand{\thesubtable}{\arabic{subtable}}
 
% set up labelformat and labelsep for table
\captionsetup[table]{labelformat=simple, labelsep=period}
% set up labelformat and labelsep for subtable
\captionsetup[subtable]{labelformat=simple, labelsep=colon}
 
\begin{table}	
	\centering
	\begin{subtable}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\begin{tabular}{|l|l|}
			\hline
			100 & 200\\
			\hline
		\end{tabular}
		\caption{Caption 1}\label{table:1a}
	\end{subtable}
	\quad
	\begin{subtable}[t]{1in}
		\centering
		\begin{tabular}{|l|l|}
			\hline
			100 & 200\\
			\hline
		\end{tabular}
		\caption{Caption 2}\label{table:1b}
	\end{subtable}
	\caption{Table caption text}\label{table:1}
\end{table}

The output looks like this:

Label lettering and numbering style and captionsetup for tables and subtables.

Cross references

You can reference the caption labels in the text by using \ref{LABEL}, where LABEL is the label you assigned using a \label command. This will generate the number or letter corresponding to the label. Subcaptions can be referenced with \subref{LABEL}. To generate “Figure 1(a)”:

Figure \ref{fig:1}(\subref{fig:1a})

Note that the name assigned using the \label command is arbitrary so you do not have to keep track of whether a figure is Figure 1 or not. I just called them fig:1 and fig:1a to be more clear here.

You can also reference a subfigure directly without splitting it up into ref and subref:

\ref{fig:1a})

This, however, will by default generate 1a. If you want to use 1(a), you will need to use:

% put these at the beginning of your document.
\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=simple}
\renewcommand\thesubfigure{(\alph{subfigure})}
 
\begin{figure}	
	\centering
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption 1}\label{fig:1a}		
	\end{subfigure}
	\quad
	\begin{subfigure}[t]{1in}
		\includegraphics[width=1in]{placeholder}
		\caption{Caption 2}\label{fig:1b}
	\end{subfigure}
	\caption{Main figure caption}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}
 
Figure \ref{fig:1a}

The first \captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=simple} will prevent double parentheses in the figures themselves.

As before, you can replace figure with table and subfigure with subtable to work with tables and subtables.

Reset the caption counter

If you need to reset the caption counter for figures (so subsequent figures start at 1 again), you can use the following:

\setcounter{figure}{0} % reset figure counter to 0.

You may use table or the name of any other counter in lieu of figure to reset the corresponding counter.

Change the caption name

If you want to change the name of the figure or table caption from “Fig.” to “Figure” or “Table” to “Tab.” or anything else you want, you can use \renewcommand with \figurename or \tablename:

\renewcommand{\tablename}{Tbl}
 
\renewcommand{\figurename}{Image}

The above will change all table captions to be called “Tbl [Table Number]” or “Image [Figure Number]”.

One potential issue you may run into is that the various document classes use a command other than \figurename or \tablename in the table captions. For example, the thesis document class will use \figureshortname or \tableshortname in the captions instead. In these cases, renew the corresponding command. To find out what the command is, you can look into the .cls file of your document class. You can look for the specific string (e.g. “Fig.”) and find out what command was defined for it. Then you can override it. You could also just create a new document class based on the original .cls file.

Thanks a lot! Very helpful.

The thing I did not find is how to control the vertical spacing between the images and the subscriptions.

Dmitri
Peter Yu, 2012/06/22 17:58
I don't have LaTeX installed right now but perhaps look into:

\abovecaptionskip
\belowcaptionskip

For subcaptions (http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/49448/controlling-the-subcaption-space-in-memoir):

\subfloattopskip
\subfloatbottomskip

etc.

You can set these lengths using \setlength

Hi,
is there a way to change the caption labelling order from, for instance given 4 images, a - b - c - d, to b - a - d - c??

Thanks
Peter Yu, 2012/09/29 15:11
Not that I know of. The counters behind the labels count in order and I don't know of a way to override the mappings from count to letter.
Ali, 2012/10/14 23:18
I was looking how to prevent counter from showing (i.e. "labelformat = empty") and found it here.
Thank you very much! Organized and professional website :)
Arunkumar C R, 2012/10/21 05:37
Hi,

I am having a "single figure" plotted which contains 4 smaller figures named and marked as a,b,c and d within it. So the LaTeX part to include this single figure would be,

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{Figure1.eps}
\caption{figure caption comes here)
\label{figure1}
\end{figure}
So, if I do a ~\ref{figure1}, it will link to the whole single figure Fig. 1, which is fine.

Now, I want to have,
~\ref{figure1}a or ~\ref{figure1}b appearing as Fig. 1a or Fig. 1b with the same colour & hence the link (redirection to Fig. 1 caption). At present a or b is getting included, which is my concern.

Will you be able to suggest me an answer for this.?

thanking you

regards
arun
Peter Yu, 2012/10/25 02:24
I don't think I know the answer to that. What happens if you leave a space before the letter?
Chris, 2012/11/03 23:09
great website, thanks again!
I had the problem to change the caption name,
but in the end

\addto\captionsngerman{\renewcommand\figurename{Bild}}

was to my rescue. Just wanted to post that in case someone
has the same issue.

regards Chris
Peter Yu, 2012/11/04 19:03
I just looked this up, this is used when you are using the Babel package. The \addto macro lets you add extra statements to the Babel macros (e.g. \captionsngerman) that it uses for each language. The Babel macros themselves define names for the captions, document entities, etc. in each language. You add the renewcommand into it to change them.

Thanks for pointing this out.
Ray, 2012/12/03 09:56
Hi would you please help me with the following problem. I have figuresvfrom MATLAB which have a lot of white space on the sides. I tried using the epstopdf package but it didn't work, so I resorted to using \vspace and \hspace to reduce the white space. Now my problem is that when I use the subfigure package and try to label them, the labels get intersected with the figure and when I use \vspace to try to adjust the labels so that they don't intercect with the figure it doesnt work. How can I adjust the sublabels and position them where I want to?

Fantastic website - I have it bookmarked when writing! One question:
In \documentclass{article}
If I enter
"
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=6.0in]{initial_profile.pdf}
\textbf{\caption{\textmd{\small{Profiles initial sounding.}}}}
\label{initial}
\end{figure}

Figure~\ref{initial} shows... "

The Caption under the figure shows "Figure 1." (which is fine) but in the text it is referred to as "Figure 1.1 shows...".

How would you change this to "Figure 1 shows ..."
Peter Yu, 2012/12/08 03:08
I think you have to put the label right after the \caption command itself, within the same block:

\textbf{\caption{\textmd{\small{Profiles initial sounding.}}}\label{initial}}

When I tried exactly what you had, I didn't get Figure 1.1 but rather an undefined reference. I hope that fixes it.

I also wasn't able to see the effect of \textbf in the caption.
Nehzat, 2013/01/10 10:00
Hi,
I have a figure which has several subfigures that some of them should appear on the next page. Is there a way of doing that? At the moment I am putting the additional figures in another figure with no caption but this is not nice because I want to continue the subcaptions from the previous figure!
Thanks in advance,
Nehzat
Nehzat, 2013/01/10 12:13
Oh, it seems that if I use the command \ContinuedFloat in the second figure and have captions in the second figure, both figures have the same number and the subcaptions continue from the first one.

Peter Yu, 2013/03/04 19:36
There may very well be, it probably has to do with the type of document or document style you are using. You'll probably have to look up the documentation for this.

Peter Yu, 2013/07/17 18:35
You can try putting the first heading and caption before an \endfirsthead. See the longtable example at: http://www.peteryu.ca/tutorials/publishing/latex_table_tips

You may have to change caption for subsequent pages (the one that occurs before \endhead) to \caption* or \caption[] if you don't want it to appear in the list but I haven't tested this yet.

This was a great starting point !!!
I was looking for a way to have "Figure 1 - caption" so I used the below command, since I didn't see anything similar in your post (correct me if I'm wrong)

\usepackage{caption}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\arabic{figure}}
\DeclareCaptionLabelFormat{dash}{#1 #2 -- }
\captionsetup[figure]{labelformat=dash}
