# Changing Figure caption text size. [duplicate]

How can I change the size of text for figure captions?

Currently my code looks like,

\begin{figure}[H]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=1]{Image.png}
\caption{Caption}
\end{figure}


This makes the Caption in the same size and font as the bulk text of my document. Ideally I would like it to be smaller.

Use the caption package and declare:

\captionsetup[figure]{font=Large,labelfont=Large}


to have your figure captions with \Large font, for example.

Available values are scriptsize, footnotesize, small, normalsize, large, and Large.

MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{caption}
\captionsetup[figure]{font=Large,labelfont=Large}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=.3]{example-image}
\caption{Caption}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


labelfont is only really needed if you want different formatting for the caption label and the caption itself.
