# How to reduce space between image and its caption?

I m importing one image in latex document. But caption has bigger font than my normal text on page.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

Some text...

\begin{figure}[htb]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[height=1in,width=1in,angle=-90]{foo}
\caption{This is a figure.}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

More text...

\end{document}


How to reduce the font size of caption and space between caption and image?

-

You can do it with caption package. The space between the caption and the figure is called skip (default is 10pt).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx} %% Remove [demo] in your file
%\usepackage{caption}
%or equivalently
\usepackage[font=small,skip=0pt]{caption}

\begin{document}

Some text...

\begin{figure}[htb]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[height=1in,width=1in,angle=-90]{foo}
\caption{This is a figure.}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

More text...

\begin{table}[htb]
\centering
\caption{This is a table.}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
% after \\: \hline or \cline{col1-col2} \cline{col3-col4} ...
1 & 2 \\
4 & 7 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

More text...

\end{document}


Please note that \captionsetup{font=small,skip=0pt} affects both tables and figures. If you want it separately, you may use:

 \captionsetup[table]{font=small,skip=0pt}


for tables only or

\captionsetup[figure]{font=small,skip=0pt}


for figures only.

I was about to edit my answer to contain the explanation but you already have it in yours so I am deleting my answer :) –  hpesoj626 Jan 16 '13 at 5:03
As much as I enjoy earning reputation, I enjoy better answers more. :) Making mine better is out of the question since it will look like a duplicate of your answer. +1 anyway. –  hpesoj626 Jan 16 '13 at 5:10
@hpesoj626 Nice of you. I basically enjoy troubleshooting (and learning in turn). Everything comes next :-) –  Harish Kumar Jan 16 '13 at 5:15
@user15662 The setup here will affect both figures and tables. If you want to separate caption settings for tables and figures set \captionsetup[table]{} and \captionsetup[figure]{} separately. –  hpesoj626 Jan 16 '13 at 6:52
Doesn't work for me –  LMT-PhD May 7 '14 at 9:05
