In my function it returns a plot of my data, say example, using ListLinePlot, and this is the size I obtain:

enter image description here

enter image description here

but when running a series of simulations inside a Table:

Table[tCorrStudentsT[i]=sensStudentsT[sensMat[[i]], mcRun,chrT,hrT,ppT,r] ,{i,10}]

the resultant graphs look like these, without manually adjusting each graph after simulation is complete?

enter image description here

so how can I set it such that the series of graphs will be consistent with my single simulation result plot size?

Its better to post code rather than images. – Andy Ross Jan 8 '13 at 2:37
Say a function I run once returns a window size of 200 x 200 pixels in size, is there a way to make the same window size of any plots when running the same function inside a Table loop, as it is hard to see the same result on a different scaling each time when I run different number of the same functions. – sebastian c.

As you insist on posting code as an image, which makes it non-copyable, and you refuse to learn how to format your questions, I'm voting to close as not a real question. In addition to the down vote, of course. – rcollyer Jan 9 '13 at 6:13
p = Plot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}, ImageSize -> 200]

Mathematica graphics

size = ImageSize /. FullOptions[p];
Table[Plot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}, ImageSize -> size], {6}]

Hi Nasser, is this a pre or post simulation option? It is because I have already ran my long simulations and prefer not to rerun these again. – sebastian c. Jan 8 '13 at 3:05
Hi Nasser, so inside my functionPlot: p=ListLinePlot[...]; size=ImageSize /. FullOptions[p] (plotting it once) and then when called by Table using Table[ functionPlot[], {i,6}, ImageSize -> pSize]. This gives me error of pSize at position 3 does not have the correct form for an iterator? Also size is still Automatic? I made size to be global as opposed to local variable. – sebastian c.

I was going to suggest that if you had generated simulations/plots, you could reset the graphics options with Show:

Sims + incorrect plots:

sims = RandomReal[{0, 1}, {10, 200}];
plots = ListLinePlot[#,
  PlotLabel -> Style["Gaussian copula to 1st default spreads", FontSize -> 18]] & /@ sims

Reset options:

Show[#, PlotLabel -> Style["Gaussian copula to 1st default spreads", 
     FontSize -> Scaled[0.06]], ImageSize -> 800] & /@ plots

The only problem is that when I use a relative font size Scaled[0.06], which rescales nicely if you change the size of the image or use Export, extra white space is inserted around the graph, especially on the sides and sometimes on top.

Nasser is right about using ImageSize to control the image's size. Sometimes you have to use ImagePadding, too, if the ticks change width (because of a different number of digits or minus signs that come & go).
