Restarting figure numbering

Does anyone know how to start the numeration of figures from the second figure, that is, I would like the first figure, which is illustrative, not to be included in figure counting, so that Fig. 1 stands below the second figure, Fig. 2 below the third one etc.

• What should be below the first inserted figure? If nothing, simply do not use \caption{} on it. – Sigur Oct 14 '19 at 16:01
• Or use caption* in the illustrative figure, if you like to have some description above(below figure. – Zarko Oct 14 '19 at 16:04
• Well, the fact that I am using tikzposter package presents an additional complication. So I use the following environment when including a figure: \begin{tikzfigure}[{Here goes a figure caption or nothing}] \includegraphics[width=0.5\subcolwidth]{somefigure.pdf} \end{tikzfigure} So even if I skip the caption, that figure will still be included in numeration. – Boki Oct 16 '19 at 10:13
