A bit belated but ... here is a command to put a figure with a
caption text (avoiding the modification of TeX primitives). Modify
the \parbox[t]... portion to change how the text is displayed.

\usepackage{graphicx}

%% *****
%% \putfigwc[widthfactor]{filename}{captiontext}
%% [widthfactor] - optional width factor for figure as size of textwidth
%%		default 1 - full width of text
%% {filename} - filename for figure
%% {captiontext} - figure caption text

\newcommand{\putfigwc}[3][1]{%
\includegraphics[width=#1\textwidth]{#2} \\
\parbox[t]{#1\textwidth}{#3}%
}
