layout: docs title: Figures description: Documentation and examples for displaying related images and text with the figure component in Bootstrap. group: content

Anytime you need to display a piece of content—like an image with an optional caption, consider using a <figure>.

Use the included .figure , .figure-img and .figure-caption classes to provide some baseline styles for the HTML5 <figure> and <figcaption> elements. Images in figures have no explicit size, so be sure to add the .img-fluid class to your <img> to make it responsive.

Aligning the figure's caption is easy with our [text utilities]({{ site.baseurl }}/docs/{{ site.docs_version }}/utilities/text/#text-alignment).
