[Tex/LaTex] Turn off automatic figure numbering


I have this code:

  \caption{Fig. 6: example.}

But it is the 6th figure of my report. I automatically also see Figure 1 before Fig.6, I guess because this is the first time I use figure*.

I use figure* because the rest of my document it 2 columns and this allows me to have a 2 column figure. How do i turn off this auto numbering?

LaTeX will automatically insert a label and a number whenever you say \caption, if you don't want this, either don't use the word \caption or use \caption* from the caption package.



 \caption*{Fig. 6: example.}
 % Or just:
 % Fig. 6: example.
