# How to write a source description under the loaded picture?

I loaded a picture with screen capture from a PDF book, besides giving the title of this picture, I also need to cite the source of it. How should I do this? I tried put the source in the

\captions{}


But looks aweful, and can't make line break. Please anyone tell me how to do this in a proper way.

Can you be more specific about how you want the source to be displayed? – Count Zero Jun 2 '12 at 17:05
Since you have some responses below that seem to answer your question, please consider marking one of them as ‘Accepted’ by clicking on the tickmark below their vote count (see How do you accept an answer?). This shows which answer helped you most, and it assigns reputation points to the author of the answer (and to you!).

You can use the \caption* command provided by the caption package to typeset information without label and without entry in the list of figures (tables). A little example assuming you are using the floating figure environment:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% demo option just for the example
\usepackage{caption}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\caption{A test figure}
\label{fig:test}
\includegraphics{name}
\caption*{Source: some source}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


Of course, you can also simply write the source text:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% demo option just for the example

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\caption{A test figure}
\label{fig:test}
\includegraphics{name}\par
Source: some source
\end{figure}

\end{document}
