# How to remove caption of some subfigures?

I have four figures and want to put them together as subfigures. However, I don't want the first one to have a caption. Can anybody figure it out please?

\begin{figure}[t!]
\centering
\subfigure[]{
\includegraphics[width=5.2in]{legend.eps}
}\\
\subfigure[]{
\label{fig:1}
\includegraphics[width=4.8in]{fig1.eps}
}\\
\subfigure[]{
\label{fig:2s}
\includegraphics[width=4.8in]{fig2.eps}
}
\subfigure[]{
\label{fig:3}
\includegraphics[width=4.8in]{fig3.eps}
}
\caption{something and something}
\label{fig:Simulation}
\end{figure}

You should use the subcaption package (included in caption). It lets you have no caption for subfigures but still have a label to cross-reference them. –  Bernard Oct 3 '13 at 0:45

The key is syntax. The optional argument of the subfigure macro sets the caption. If you drop it, there won't be any caption. So the solution looks like:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[t!]
\centering
\subfigure{
\includegraphics[width=5.2in]{legend.eps}  %legend.eps does not have a caption
}\\
\subfigure[]{
\label{fig:1}
\includegraphics[width=4.8in]{fig1.eps}    %fig1.eps has one
}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

The subfigure package is obsolete; use subfig (and the \subfloat command that has the same syntax) or subcaption. –  egreg Oct 3 '13 at 9:26
