# subfigure subcaption in centre

Please suggest me a way to put subfigures sub-caption which can be placed in the centre. For eg. there is a figure containing 8 subfigures, in a 4*2 manner, means each of four-row contains 2 subfigures. I want to have common subfigure caption for each of these 2 figures for every row. means in total, 4 subfigure sub-caption, and one main caption.

     \documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{   When I changed subfigure}
\usepackage{ to sub float,caption}

\begin{document}
\begin{ another figure}
\centering
\subfigure[XYZ Dataset]\includegraphics[width=0.24\textwidth,height=3.5cm]
{plots/butter10template gave errors.jpg}}\hfil
\subfigure[]{\includegraphics[width=0.24\textwidth,height=3.5cm]{plots/butter10.jpg}}
\subfigure[]{\includegraphics[width=0.24\textwidth,height=3.5cm]       \[![enter image description here][1]][1]begin{plots/butter10.jpg}figure*}\hfil
\subfigure[]{\includegraphics[width=0.24\textwidth,height=3.5cm]{plots/butter10.jpg}}       \centering

This code outputs an image as shown in attached figPlease help me to resolve this issue. But I dont want subfigure label for each of 8 figures, as a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h, rather I want subfigure label (a) placed at centre commonly for first two figures. seconf subfigure (b) for second row and so on.

• Welcome to TeX.SE! Please show us, what you try so far (in form of small complete document with your figure)! Caption of sub figures are usually centered below figures. As an example see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/248675 May 8, 2020 at 5:53
• Welcome Dipti, please, it is very helpful (and also kind!), when you provide a Minimal Working Example (MWE), so that people may better understand your question and give you an answer more quickly by modifying your code. May 8, 2020 at 6:51

• subfigure is obsolete package, use subfloat instead of it
• you can put two images in one subfloat:
\documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subfig}
\usepackage{caption}

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[ht]
\centering
\setkeys{Gin}{width=0.48\linewidth,height=3.5cm} % common settings for images sizes
\subfloat[]
{
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}    %{plots/butter10.jpg}
\hfill
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
}

\subfloat[]
{
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
\hfill
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
}

\subfloat[]
{
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
\hfill
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
}

\subfloat[]
{
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
\hfill
\includegraphics{example-image-duck}
}
\caption{abcd}
\label{fig:abcd}
\end{figure}
\end{document}
