# How to include a large number of images in the appendix?

I would like to put 17 images in the appendix. The 17 images belong together but they span multiple pages. I would like to put 6 images on one page (2 pages per row, 3 rows). So in the end I will have 3 pages. I will do it in the following way:

\begin{figure}[!htbp]
\subfloat[Caption 1]{%
\input{figure1.tikz}
}
\hfill
\subfloat[Caption 2]{%
\input{figure2.tikz}
}

\smallskip

\subfloat[Caption 3]{%
\input{figure3.tikz}
}
\hfill
\subfloat[Caption 4]{%
\input{figure4.tikz}
}

\caption{My overall caption}
\end{figure}


I have found some solutions for the page break with subfloats. But the problem is when I use an outer figure environment the overall caption of that figure would be at the last page (third page) which is bad. Moreover, the figures would be names (a)-(q) which is also not so nice for such a large number of images. Another option would be to include each figure in its own figure environment (that means no overall caption).

Which method is prefered for including such a large number of images in the appendix? As said the figures conceptually belongs together.

• Why don't you use a longtable environment (or a breakable tabularx)? You could use \captionof{figure}{your caption} and repeat it at the bottom of each page. – Bernard Jul 6 '16 at 23:58
• This is really off-topic for this site. We do the how? You are asking the what? Or whether? That said, what's bad about labelling the images (1)-(17) or whatever? – cfr Jul 7 '16 at 1:35
