[Tex/LaTex] Combine a grid of images into a single figure WITHOUT subfigures and labels, captions, etc



\subfloat[unwanted caption\label{fig:test2}]
\caption{Something something, etc. a desired overall caption}

This will produce a figure with an overall (desired) caption, and two subfigures, oriented left and right. The left figure will have a "caption" which just says


and the right figure will have caption

(b) unwanted caption

1. How do I remove these captions entirely so that the two images appear to be simply part of one overall figure?

2. How can I generalize this simply to allow for a 2×2 grid of 4 images, combined with just one overall caption and no individual (a),(b), (c), (d) or captions?

Also, generically, the subcaption package doesn't work for me, so I really hope you can suggest a way to accomplish this without that…

The comments above basically gave me the answer, and here it is

 \includegraphics[width=.48\linewidth]{example-image-a} \hfill
 \includegraphics[width=.48\linewidth]{example-image-b} \\

\caption{Something something, overall}
