I use the sidecap package to add small graphics with captions on the inner side of a page with the following options in the preamble:
Sometimes (depending on the contents) the images should be placed at top of the page, sometimes - at bottom.
The publisher requires the following formatting:
images placed at the top of the page should have the caption at the top (that is actually solved by sidecaptionvpos))
images placed at the bottom of the page have the caption positioned at the bottom of the figure, as shown in the picture below:
Is there a way to do the trick / redefine sidecaptionvpos for individual figures?
