If I've understood this rightly, and as is often the case with journal
requests, this is something that has already been solved:


e.g., using ccaption:




%% Reference to figure is normal.
See Figure~\ref{myfigure}.

%% "Figure 1:" is in bold, rest of caption is normal.



See the ccaption documentation for other possible tweaks to caption
