# Caption position in LaTeX

I have a figure in which i have labelled axes manually.

\begin{figure}[H]
\centering
\setlength{\unitlength}{0.1\textwidth}
\begin{picture}(5,3.5)

\put(-0.1,0.1){$0$}
\put(-0.1,3){$1$}
\put(-1.0,1.55){$S(T)$}
\put(0.13,-0.2){$0$}
\put(4.90,-0.2){$T$}

\put(2.5,-0.5){$t$}
\put(0,0){\includegraphics[width=0.50\textwidth]{switchmod.eps}}
\end{picture}
\caption{Switch model}
\label{fig:lion}
\end{figure}


And the output is

As clear from picture, figure caption and my manual labeling have been overlapped. How to create space such that caption is much lower?

• Adjust the pictures size and offset. (5,3.5) in your code now. – Paul Gessler Feb 23 '15 at 15:58
• Or consider using the tikz package instead of the picture env. Then the sizes are automatically adjusted. – daleif Feb 23 '15 at 15:59
• @Paul adjusting picture size and offset did not help as it was dealing picture as a whole. Means shifting the whole picture with labels up , down or left, right. I need to the option such that caption is much lower. How to specify the position? – zenith Feb 23 '15 at 16:02
• You can use the second () optional argunment of picture to allow for your negative coordinates, but simpler is just leave a blank line after the picture and put \vspace{5cm} before the caption – David Carlisle Feb 23 '15 at 16:08
• used \vspace{5cm} . It worked. Thank you – zenith Feb 23 '15 at 16:10
