I loaded a picture with screen capture from a PDF book, besides giving the title of this picture, I also need to cite the source of it. How should I do this? I tried put the source in the

\captions{}

But looks aweful, and can't make line break. Please anyone tell me how to do this in a proper way.

You can use the \caption* command provided by the caption package to typeset information without label and without entry in the list of figures (tables). A little example assuming you are using the floating figure environment:

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% demo option just for the example
\usepackage{caption}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\caption{A test figure}
\label{fig:test}
\includegraphics{name}
\caption*{Source: some source}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Of course, you can also simply write the source text:

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% demo option just for the example

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\caption{A test figure}
\label{fig:test}
\includegraphics{name}\par
Source: some source
\end{figure}

\end{document}
