Default Arranging Images as well Multilevel List

When a multilevel list is created, Word arranges all levels automatically in the document. It means if one of chapters is deleted then numbering of another chapters will be modified AUTOMATICALLY.
I look for something like multilevel list for images. Assume a document with a lot of images and each image has an explanation below it. Both image and it's explanation have to be together over the document.


Is it possible to make something like Multilevel List for images and their explanations? So if one of the pictures is removed then the number of another images modify automatically.

In what way would deleting one image 'modify' another's number? If you're using captions, they renumber automatically in response to inserting another one or deleting an existing one; it's just that the numbering update isn't dynamic - you need to do something to cause the field display to update (e.g. Ctrl-A, F9).

I used Caption. But:
1- It can not numbering images automatically. I want it to number images based on chapters' numbers (which I have defined as Multilevel list). e.g. if a chapter is numbered as 1-3-4 then it assigns the images of this chapter such 1-3-4-a, 1-3-4-b, 1-3-4-c and so on. Is it possible?

Assume there are many images, equations and tables in a long chapter. All of these have to be numbered as 2-4-1-a to 2-4-1-u. Numbering manually seems to be hard. How can do it with Caption automatically numbering.

Let me ask in another way:
We know how Heading Numbering works. After defining Multilevel List, we click on a special chapter and then select one of Heading Styles from Styles Gallery. The correct number is assigned to that chapter automatically. I am looking for such procedure to numbering images. Then it will be enough to select an image, then click on special Style from Style Gallery and it assigns the correct number to that image without typing manually.
Thanks.

Captioning done via References|Insert Caption does do the numbering automatically and can include the chapter numbers. Did you even bother to look at the options?

Caption from Insert???
I think you mean References>Caption.
But I can not numbering images AUTOMATICALLY via Caption options. I have read the Help, but nothing happened.
Another thing:
Is it possible to make Captions which their numbers follow Headings' numbers?

I have already answered that. You really should spend some time learning how to use Word; these forums do not exist to spoon-feed people who can't be bothered learning anything.

I am not spoon-feed. This word is not politely. I am reading, surveying and trying hard to solve my problems and this forum is one of my TRYING.
I think you did not comprehend what I asked exactly. I can number images from 1 to ... via References/Insert Captions, but what I want is numbering images based upon Headings' numbers. Headings' numbers were created via Multilevel list option.
Assume a chapter with 2-3-5 as Heading Number. This chapter has several images. I want to number images of this chapter as 2-3-5-a, 2-3-5-b, 2-3-5c and so on.
What Insert Caption does is numbering images (from each chapter) from 1 to ... without separating numbering for each chapter.
I hope to explain the question completely.

Instead of being so lazy - yes, lazy - look at the caption numbering options.
