# Distance between caption and figure

I have used this code but there is unsuitable distance between caption and figure. Can anyone help me?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphics}

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{solpro.pdf}
\caption{flowchart of solution procees}
\label{fig:fig1}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

• then your image has some whitespace at the bottom! – user2478 Oct 14 '14 at 10:10
• You should edit your post. Could we see what is an unsuitable distance? This probably is not due to LaTeX, but to a wrong bouding box of the image, i.e. unwanted white space at the bottom of the image. – Bernard Oct 14 '14 at 10:12

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphics}
\usepackage[skip=.5em]{caption} %use skip=<whatever you like>

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
%\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{solpro.pdf}
\rule{34mm}{55mm}% test image
\caption{flowchart of solution procees}
\label{fig:fig1}
\end{figure}
