### Reference to Figure without a Caption

Hi,

I'm using MiKTeX 2.9 and all references of my figures are picking up the section number. I found some posts that answer this by placing the \label after the \caption. However, I don't want to use a caption. What should I do?

Any good reasons against a caption? And if there are, why should there be a reference and how should this look like?

Hi,

I don't need captions since the figures already include it. The order of the figure is the same, so I don't have troubles with the ennumeration. I would really like to avoid the work of typing the captions and the trouble of opening figure by figure and extracting the part of the caption.

(The idea is that the reference looks like any other reference, to a figure that doesn't have caption but has the caption IN the figure itself.)
