I would like to assign one caption to a picture in my report, without this caption begin in the listing of figure.

I use the following:

\caption{Yearling inspecté, de profil}

How can I do that?

(Sorry for my English.)

If you don't want your figure to be listed in the table of figures, you can Use \caption*{Your caption} after loading the caption package:

I tried to do that, I thought that it would be the solution but it is not working. In this case, the caption is still in the table of figures and * is in my caption ! – Tidou Apr 10 '13 at 17:21
Perfect with the package ! Thanks ! – Tidou Apr 10 '13 at 17:29
