I generated a histogram by using matplotlib
import numpy as np import pylab as P mu, sigma = 200, 25 x = mu + sigma*P.randn(10000) P.figure() bins = 10 n, bins, patches = P.hist(x, bins, normed=1, histtype='bar', rwidth=0.8) P.show()
I want to make the picture smaller, how could I do that?
Thanks for your help
If you just want to set it for this specific figure, then change your figure declaration to:
where i is the width in inches and j is the height in inches.
In addition to specifying the figsize, there's also a dpi option - although this is more important if you're using one of the image generating backends.
