Homework Help: Matlab figure into latex

  1. Sep 13, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am trying to attach a matlab figure in Latex

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I saved the graph as .eps instead of .fig, then i opened ghostscript, and saw that the figure was too wide to fit on the page...
    how can i mend this?

    thank you

    There is the command \includegraphics[scale=0.5]{picture.eps}
    Where is this case you have scaled the picture down by half.

    You also need \usepackacage{graphicx} in the preamble

    what if i need it even a bit smaller?
    would i put scale=0.75?
    or scale=0.25?

    thanks

    scale=1 means the same shape, scale=0.5 os 50% reduced. scale=0.25 is 25% of the original scale etc...
