I have the following longtable :

    some text

    \includegraphics[width=10cm,keepaspectratio]{\basedir some.png} 

    some text\\

Is there a way to insert a caption and a label to a graphic inside a longtable?


How can I insert a figure into a longtable cell?

I have been searching for a while but couldn't find any solution. Thanks in advance.

    Please note that graphicx offers the \graphicspath macro, which does what you try with \basedir ;-) Furthermore always provide minimal working examples (MWE) illustration your problem – you may use the demo option of graphicx since no other have your image files. There’s also the mwe package, that comes with some example images …

Then you can use

\figcaption{my caption}

where you have some text

  • That's what I was looking for, it really helped. Thank you so much...

David's wise answer guided me to the solution. I am just improving his answer but I lack reputation points to add a comment.

First, it works also for longtabu.

Second, we can also add a table caption with:


Then use:

\tabcaption{my caption}

Third, I strongly believe that one has to use p{} columns to get it working. In longtabu, I was using X[] columns and it didn't work.
