### Figures with not Figer name and it's own couner

In the article some images must have under them:

Figure N. This beautiful image

and other must have:

Scheme N. The nice scheme

with it's own counter.

I do not know how to do this.
I work in LYX and do the article in 2 columns, so I use caption package and do caption as \captionof{figure}{General synthetic route} as Tex code
But I do not know what to do with Scheme and it's own counter.
Can somebody help?
Thanks.

If you're using the caption package already I'd load the newfloat package in addition and define a {scheme} environment which behaves the same as the {figure} environment:

\usepackage{newfloat} \DeclareFloatingEnvironment[   fileext   = los, % file extension for the list of schemes   listname  = {List of schemes}, % heading for the list   name      = Scheme, % name in captions   placement = htp % default floating paramaters]{scheme}

This also defines \listofschemes and enables the usage of \captionof{scheme}{…}.

With the above definition in the preamble you can use

\begin{scheme}   Here goes the actual scheme…   \caption{Caption of the scheme.}\end{scheme}
