I'd like to include some figures in my LaTeX document just like every other figure but don't have exactly these figures included in the list of figures. Since I couldn't find a solution I have to ask you, is there a way?

As described in figures in sidewaysfigure environment are not listed in List of Figures you can add an empty optional argument to \caption and load either of the packages subfig, caption or subcaption to make the figure not appear in the list of figures.




  \caption[]{My caption 1}% Does not appear in LoF

  \caption{My caption 2}% Appears in LoF



Output of example

Many thanks! That did it! – Funkybit Feb 9 '12 at 15:28
If i do that, the figures are still listed in the List of Figure, only without their names, so there are empty references to the pages, which looks very ugly. – Coliban May 12 at 12:35
