I think that the difference in frame dimensions is due to different settings of ImagePadding. You can achieve what you want with setting ImagePadding to the same value for all your plots: padding = 20; GraphicsRow[{LogLogPlot[1 + Sin[x], {x, 1, 100}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"horizontal", "vertical"}, AspectRatio -> 4/5, ImagePadding -> padding], Plot[Sinc[x], {x, -5, 5}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"horizontal", "vertical"}, AspectRatio -> 4/5, ImagePadding -> padding]}] It needs some iterations to find a value that works for all plots. Unfortunatley finding the largest ImagePadding values with AbsoluteOptions and use that automatically seems to not work since it will return ImagePadding -> All which is not much help... hth, albert
