Re: Graphics--Need Help: How to show legends for graphics under Show Command?

Something like the following?

Plot[{Cos[x], Sin[x]}, {x, -Pi/2, Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> {Hue[0.6],
Hue[0.8]}, Frame -> {True, True, False, False}, Axes -> False,
  PlotLegend -> TraditionalForm /@ {Cos[x], Sin[x]}, LegendShadow ->
None, LegendPosition -> {0.4, -0.25},
  LegendSize -> {0.3, 0.3}, ImageSize -> {500, 400}, TextStyle ->
{FontSize -> 16, FontFamily -> "Times"},
  PlotLabel -> "a basic plot\n", FrameLabel -> {"x", "f(x)"}]

Execute the following command and start...reading about plotting.

FrontEndExecute[{HelpBrowserLookup["MainBook", "1.9"]}]

Here is also some useful links for ploting basics

(*elementary*)

Also highly recomended is to download the tutorial of WRI (technical
notes)
from here
