Saving the output figures using saveas() as full sized images

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I was trying to save the output plots directly into my present directory using the saveas() command. Even though it saves successfully I am having some trouble in saving them as full screen sized images. I used the following code:
a=[1:1:10];
figure1 = figure(1);
plot(a,sin(a));
figure1.WindowState = 'maximized';
saveas(figure1,'fig1.png')
b = [100:1:110];
figure2 = figure(2);
plot(b,cos(b));
figure2.WindowState = 'maximized';
saveas(figure2,'fig2.png')
c = [0.1:0.01:1];
figure3 = figure(3);
plot(c,sin(c));
figure3.WindowState = 'maximized';
saveas(figure3,'fig3.png')
d = [1000:10:1100];
figure4 = figure(4);
plot(d,cos(d));
figure4.WindowState = 'maximized';
saveas(figure4,'fig4.png')
When I run this, some of the plots are saved as required (i.e. after maximizing and then saving - attached as fig1, fig2, fig3.png) whereas some are saved without maximizing (attached as fig4.png). I also tried 'fullscreen' instead of maximizing, but the results stay the same.
It would be great if someone could point me in the right direction.
Thanks

Try the export_fig function in File exchange. The function will give you control over the size of the figure.
