# Rounded corner colored box around figure

I'm trying to get Rounded corner grey-colored box around figures. One solution would be to use

\usepackage{float}
\floatstyle{boxed}
\restylefloat{figure}


but this results in black box around a figure. What would be the way to proceed?

You can try mdframed. –  Marco Daniel Oct 14 '11 at 10:18

The fancybox package provides a \ovalbox macro which might be useful here. –  Martin Scharrer Nov 3 '11 at 7:16

You can define your own \floatstyle. In this case I took the definition from the float package and adjusted it to use the mdframed package environment to draw the frame.

Here is a comparison of using \floatstyle{boxed} and \floatstyle{myRoundBox}:

## Note:

• I took the liberty to add a background color, and tikzsetting to illustrate some of the customization that are possible -- see the mdframed documentation for more options.
• Updated to incorporate Torbjørn T.'s suggestion of adding a \vspace{\abovecaptionskip} in \def\@fs@mid{} as per How to frame a figure in Lyx.

## Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage[framemethod=tikz]{mdframed}

\mdfdefinestyle{myFigureBoxStyle}{backgroundcolor=yellow!10,, roundcorner=25pt,tikzsetting={draw=blue, line width=1pt}}%

\makeatletter
\newcommand\fs@myRoundBox{\def\@fs@cfont{\bfseries}\let\@fs@capt\floatc@plain
\def\@fs@pre{\begin{mdframed}[style=myFigureBoxStyle]}%
\def\@fs@mid{\vspace{\abovecaptionskip}}%
\def\@fs@post{\end{mdframed}}\let\@fs@iftopcapt\iffalse}
\makeatother

\floatstyle{myRoundBox}
\restylefloat{figure}

\begin{document}

\floatstyle{boxed}
\restylefloat{figure}

\section{Using boxed}
\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.35\textwidth]{../images/EiffelTall}
\caption{Some caption}
\end{figure}

\floatstyle{myRoundBox}
\restylefloat{figure}
\section{Using myRoundBox}
\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.35\textwidth]{../images/EiffelTall}
\caption{Some caption}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

As I just used your answer, a thought came up: If you add something like \vspace{\abovecaptionskip} in \def\@fs@mid{} you get some space between image and caption. –  Torbjørn T. Jun 14 at 17:47
@TorbjørnT.: Good point. Have incorporated your suggestions. –  Peter Grill Jun 16 at 3:46
