I need to have different caption format for figures and for tables. Captions for figures have to be centered and captions for tables - left aligned. How to define this?

Use the caption package and its justification=raggedright option. If desired, add singlelinecheck=false to make sure that single-line captions are also typeset raggedright.


% Optional: float content (apart from caption) centered



\caption{A figure}

(Tabular material)
\caption{A table}


The package caption allows exactly this.
