This question already has an answer here:

The following code rotates the figure as I want to, so now my Y axis is parallel to the shorter edge of my A4 sheet. However, my caption is still parallel to the shorter edge of my sheet.

How can I make the caption follow the figure and be parallel to the large edge of my sheet?

\begin{figure}[p]

\centering
\includegraphics[width=1.3\textwidth, angle =90 ]{Graphs/1.png}
\caption{Box plot of number of positions sent per iteration using this scheme}
\label{fig:awesome_image}

\end{figure}

    rotating package and sidewaysfigure – David Carlisle Mar 9 '13 at 15:11

The rotating package introduces a sidewaysfigure environment that lends itself well to that:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{sidewaysfigure}
    \centering
    \begin{tikzpicture}[scale=4]
        \fill[blue] (0,0) rectangle(2,1.5);  
    \end{tikzpicture}
    \caption{Box plot of number of positions sent per iteration using this scheme}
    \label{fig:awesome_image}
\end{sidewaysfigure}

\end{document}

enter image description here

  • There's no need to specify the [p] ("page by itself") location directive when starting the sidewaysfigure environment: The figure will be placed automatically on a page by itself. – Mico Mar 9 '13 at 16:08
  • @Mico Ok. Fixed. – jubobs Mar 9 '13 at 16:09

    It really upsets me that the sidewaysfigure is read from bottom to top, is there a way to make it read top to bottom? – Stormie Oct 26 '16 at 16:51
  • @Stormie, you can load the rotating package with the figuresleft option: \usepackage[figuresleft]{rotating} – ballcue Feb 7 at 21:06
