I want to create a footnote with a specific number, but with no reference in the text.

The reason is because I am attaching an image in which I've put a footnote citation, but I don't know how to add a footnote now... If I use something like \footnote[5]{footnote here}, then the number 5 shows up... How do i either hide this, or add a footnote with a specific number without a reference?

tl;dr- I have an image with some text and there is footnote citation on the text. I need to add a footnote which doesn't put the ref number anywhere

You can do this with \refstepcounter{footnote}\footnotetext{bla bla} or just with \footnotetext[3]{bla bla}. Here is a MWE.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
foo\refstepcounter{footnote}\footnotetext{bla bla} bar baz

foo\footnotetext[5]{bla bla} bar baz
\end{document}

I don't know if this can satisfy you. I am still new but I used this code to do exactly that.

\makeatletter
\def\nonumfootnote{\xdef\@thefnmark{}\@footnotetext}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
your text\nonumfootnote{this footnote has no number}
\end{document}
