# In LaTeX Editor

First, label the figure by placing at the beginning of the figure caption \label{FIGURE_ID} where FIGURE_ID is an ID for the image. Then, whenever you want to reference that figure in the text, simply type \ref{FIGURE_ID} to reference that ID and the associated figure.

Using the same method to cite figures, but use tab: and eqn: instead of fig: . For example, to reference a famous equation in LaTeX, write: $$\label{eqn:mass-energy} E = mc^2.$$

# In Rich Text Editor
