 This is tricky because this is quite unusual when tpesetting. Have a
 look in the documentation of the LaTeX-package caption for a
 description how the numbering and label Figure can be suppressed.

How about using a standard paragraph instead of a caption? 

Should be easy:

* delete the empty caption paragraph that is input by default for every
  new float (as most users *do* want it), 
* insert the image, 
* press Enter to get a new paragraph, 
* write your informal caption.

I'm teaching myself Lyx by typesetting a book.

Two things I haven't been able to figure out.

1. The title page has the title, a picture in a float and the author name.
These should all fit on one A4 page (easily). However Lyx's insists on
putting a page break after the title. How can I get all these elements on
one page.

2. In putting the image in a float I call up a caption for the image. How do
I not have a caption for the image? Later I will want to have captions that
are simply descriptive and don't have Figure X in the front of them. How
do I turn off the automatic numbering?

Thanks

I recommend to use a KOMA-script document class. Then use the option titlepage. Attached is an 
example.


Note that the title image must not be a float but just the figure. Otherwise you image might float 
to another page than the title page.



2. In putting the image in a float I call up a caption for the image. How do
I not have a caption for the image?


You have 2 choices:
- don't use a float
- use a float but delete the caption
