Remove default inline style of wp-caption

By default WP adds 10px to the width of the picture for the width of the caption block as an inline style. There are 2 ways (or more, but I have 2) to get around this.

By default WordPress adds 10px to the width of the image for the width of the caption block as an inline style.

If you want to delete the whole inline styling altogether, there is this solution. Add this to your functions.php file and the inline styling will be removed.

Code Snippet:

add_shortcode('wp_caption', 'fixed_img_caption_shortcode');
add_shortcode('caption', 'fixed_img_caption_shortcode');
function fixed_img_caption_shortcode($attr, $content = null) {
	// Allow plugins/themes to override the default caption template.
	$output = apply_filters('img_caption_shortcode', '', $attr, $content);
	if ( $output != '' ) return $output;
		'id'=> '',
		'align'	=> 'alignnone',
		'width'	=> '',
		'caption' => ''), $attr));
	if ( 1 > (int) $width || empty($caption) )
	return $content;
	if ( $id ) $id = 'id="' . esc_attr($id) . '" ';
	return '<div ' . $id . 'class="wp-caption ' . esc_attr($align)
	. '">'
	. do_shortcode( $content ) . '<p class="wp-caption-text">'
	. $caption . '</p></div>';
