# [Tex/LaTex] How to reduce space between image and its caption

captionsgraphics

I m importing one image in latex document. But caption has bigger font than my normal text on page.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

Some text...

\begin{figure}[htb]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[height=1in,width=1in,angle=-90]{foo}
\caption{This is a figure.}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

More text...

\end{document}


How to reduce the font size of caption and space between caption and image?

You can do it with caption package. The space between the caption and the figure is called skip (default is 10pt).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx} %% Remove [demo] in your file
%\usepackage{caption}
%or equivalently
\usepackage[font=small,skip=0pt]{caption}

\begin{document}

Some text...

\begin{figure}[htb]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[height=1in,width=1in,angle=-90]{foo}
\caption{This is a figure.}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

More text...

\begin{table}[htb]
\centering
\caption{This is a table.}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
% after \\: \hline or \cline{col1-col2} \cline{col3-col4} ...
1 & 2 \\
4 & 7 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

More text...

\end{document}


Please note that \captionsetup{font=small,skip=0pt} affects both tables and figures. If you want it separately, you may use:

 \captionsetup[table]{font=small,skip=0pt}


for tables only or

\captionsetup[figure]{font=small,skip=0pt}


for figures only.
