# Different font sizes for Figure and Subfigure Captions

That's what I use

\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}

The template I'm using is from a university and uses the Koma Script When adding figures or graphs I do this:

\begin{figure}[h!]
\begin{subfigure}[normal]{0.40\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/Fig1}
\caption{Caption of Fig1}
\label{Label of Fig1}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[normal]{0.40\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/Fig2}
\caption{Caption of Fig2}
\label{Label of Fig2}
\end{subfigure}
\caption{This is the caption for whole graphic}
\label{This is the label for the whole graphic}
\end{figure}

what I want to know is how to simply adjust different font styles for the captions of the subfigures and figure.

I want especially the captions fonts of the subfigures to be smaller than the captions fonts of the figures.

As far as I googled the problem, I could do this with a Koma script command or by addressing the caption package.

I tried the following:

\captionsetup{font=small,labelfont={bf,sf}}

this affects all captions but how can I adjust the captions of subfigures separately?

I don't understand the difference in the approaches between the komaScript and the captionpackages So I simply want to adjust the Font sizes of the different Caption types separately and uniquely for the whole document and I would like to adjust the space between the captions and the subfigures .....

• BTW: [normal] is not a valid position specifier for the minipage and subfigure environment. – Axel Sommerfeldt Dec 16 '15 at 8:53
