I have an image image.png that has some parts: a), b) and c). I put it in my text like

\caption{Some text here \label{fig:myfig}}

I use cleveref to reference objects within the document. I want to be able to have only one figure, but to be able to generate references (with the hyperlinks) to each part of the figure, i.e. something like \Cref{fig:myfig}[a] so that cleveref transforms it to "Figure 1a)", or \Cref{fig:myfig}[a,c] transforms to "Figures 1a) and 1c)". Is this possible? How does one do it without creating separate images and creating subfigures? Thanks a lot.

    Have a look at the subcaption package - it can do phantom subfigures which then be referenced by cleverref Jun 10 '18 at 19:57

    Please make your code compilable as that's much more useful than a mere fragment. You can use e.g. example-image etc. for external graphics, as everyone (with a standard install) has those.

As mentioned in the comments, the subcaption package provides a solution for this with phantomsubcaption (see here). An example is

\caption{Two animals: \subref{cat} a huge cat,
and \subref{elephant} an elephant}
