It sounds like you're asking about changing the size and dimension of a 
graph. Is that right?

Then I suggest looking into `figsize` when creating a figure (especially 
if you are using the object oriented interface). Alternately, you can 
adjust the size of a figure afterwards with `fig.set_size_inches` (and 
variants), and you can get the figure if you are using the matlab-style 
interface with `matplotlib.pyplot.gcf()`.
