# Note to self: Latex and Labels

In a Latex figure environment, the \label command has to follow the \caption command. Otherwise referencing the figure will result in the section number (where the figure appeared) to be printed. Sometimes Latex is not very user friendly...

\begin{figure}[!th]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=2.5in]{some_filename}
\caption{some caption}
\label{fig:some_image}
\end{figure}
