To change this behavour you need to modify the option ImageSize inside Plot[] command. This option specifies the width of the image in pixels when only one numerical argument is passed: plot = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 6 Pi}, ImageSize -> 300]; And you can not control the size of the image with Graphics[Plot[], ImageSize -> 300]. This does not work. http://mathforum.org/kb/message.jspa?messageID=6184854&tstart=15
