[Tex/LaTex] Indent figure multi-line caption


\caption{Graph of intensity of the diffraction pattern for a circular aperture. Note that, similar to a single slit, the central maximum is wider and brighter than those to the sides.}


How can I indent the multi-line captoins. For example, I want to bring in the "similar" (2nd line) right under "Graph" (1st line).

With the caption package:

%   \captionsetup{format=hang}
        \caption{The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger.}

It is possible to set the option locally by placing \captionsetup in the same environment that contains the figure, or globally, by placing it in the preamble (commented in the MWE).
