Latex subfloat

  1. Aug 5, 2008 #1

    I am using the subfloat package. I have several images in my figure and I wanted to have an (a), (b), (c) under them and then refer to them like that in the caption. However, when I do ref {image1a} in the caption it shows up as "1a" instead of "a". I don't want the "1" because this is the caption for figure 1. Is there any way to get rid of that?

    Does this make sense?

    I want to something like this

    Code (Text):
      \subfloat[A gull]{\label{fig:gull}\includegraphics[width=0.3\textwidth]{gull}}                
      \subfloat[A tiger]{\label{fig:tiger}\includegraphics[width=0.3\textwidth]{tiger}}
      \subfloat[A mouse]{\label{fig:mouse}\includegraphics[width=0.3\textwidth]{mouse}}
      \caption{Here we a gull \ref{fig:gull} and a tiger \ref{fig:tiger} and a mouse \ref{fig:mouse}}
    except I want it to say (a) instead of (1a) where I put \ref{fig:gull}.

    use \subref{reflabel} rather than \ref{...}
