HTML figcaption: Main Tips

  • The HTML <figcaption> element adds a caption or a legend to the content of <figure>.
  • The <figure> element encloses both the <figcaption> and <img> to represent an image in more semantic terms.

Use of figcaption

The <figcaption> sets an image caption HTML for a <figure> element.

Example
<figure>
  <figcaption>Dog</figcaption>
  <img src="image.png" alt="The Bread Dog" width="300" height="300">
</figure>

To have a HTML image caption below the picture, place the <figcaption> element after the <img>.

Example
<figure>
<img src="image.png" alt="The Bread Dog" width="300" height="300">
    <figcaption>Dog</figcaption>
</figure>

Note: the HTML <figcaption> tag supports all global attributes, but has no special ones.
