# In Python, how do you change the size of figures drawn with Matplotlib?

Merged questions

The simplest way to change the size of an existing Matplotlib figure is to use the method ﻿`set_size_inches()`:

``````import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.plot ([1,9,2,8,3,7,4,6,5,5])

# Set figure size in inches
fig = plt.gcf()
fig.set_size_inches(20, 4)``````

The above code should display something like: 7 events in history

The simplest way to change the size of a Matplotlib figure is to set the ﻿rcParams as on the following example :

``````import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
# Set figure size in inches
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = (8,6)
plt.plot (data)``````
