Quite often after inserting a picture or image into a word document you will want to caption it. Captions make your document much more readable, and you also don’t have to be stuck with the boring old “figure 1.” as you can have the caption read whatever you want. Here’s how you do it.
1. Click the graphic.
The graphic become selected.
2. From the References tab’s Captions group, click the Insert Caption button.
A caption frame is placed below the graphic, and the Captions dialog box appears.
3. In the Caption text box, type the figure caption text.
You can remove any text that’s already there.
4. Select a position for the caption from the Position drop-down list.
The caption position is relative to the figure.
5. Click the OK button.
The dialog box closes, and the caption is applied to the figure.
6. If you want to change the caption, simply click the mouse in the caption text box and type a new caption.
Click anywhere outside the text box when you’re done.
7. To remove a caption, click the caption text box once to select it, and then press the Delete key.
The caption disappears.
Remember: The caption itself is a special type of text box, which is like a graphic image but contains text. It’s not grouped with the image, so if you move or resize the image, you have to move or resize the caption box, as well
