Hi, Piotr,

There is a regular way using the ImagePadding, but I prefer doing it fast by hand.
Try this:

Manipulate[
figA = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
ImageSize -> sz1];
figB = Plot[Cos[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
AspectRatio -> 0.2, ImageSize -> sz2];
figC = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 5}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
AspectRatio -> 0.2, ImageSize -> sz2];
Column[{figA, Row[{figB, figC}]}],
{sz1, 200, 500}, {sz2, 200, 500}
]

and play with the sliders until you get what you want. Then insert the corresponding values of the image sizes, sz1 and sz2, into the definitions of the images and evaluate without the Manipulate statement. For example, try this:

figA = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
ImageSize -> 434];
figB = Plot[Cos[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
AspectRatio -> 0.2, ImageSize -> 218];
figC = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 5}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
AspectRatio -> 0.2, ImageSize -> 218];
Column[{figA, Row[{figB, figC}]}]

Have fun, Alexei

Dear All,

I would like to ask if anybody know how to fix a following problem:

I need to plot 3 figures. The main one (figA) and two small figures under it (figB and figC). However, when I use GraphicsGrid command then the main figure is very small. Does anybody know how to align frames of this three figures?

figA = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True];
figB = Plot[Cos[x], {x, 0, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True, AspectRatio-> 0.2];
figC = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 5}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True, AspectRatio -> 0.2];
GraphicsGrid[{{figA}, {figB}, {figC}}]

Regards,

Piotr
