Figure size and colorbars

Hi,

I’ve got two questions involving matplotlib :

  1. Is there a way to ask matplotlib to automatically adjust the size of its figures to fit the size of their content ?
    I’m using axis(‘equal’). Therefore I often have figures with lot of blank, like the figure d0.jpg attached, and I would rather have something like d1.jpg.

  2. Is this possible to have an horizontal colorbar ?

Thanks

d0.jpg

d1.jpg

Try

axis('scaled')

or

axis('image')

Yes:

colorbar(orientation='horizontal')

This kwarg seems to be missing from the docstring; I will fix that.
