I have a document with a lot of pictures. The exact scale of the pictures isn't all that important. Is it possible to allow the pictures a little bit of "stretch" to help squeeze everything together? Does adding a plus and minus to the \includegraphics as below do anything?

\documentclass[10pt]{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\includegraphics[height = 0.5\textwidth plus 3cm minus 3cm]{myimage1}
\includegraphics[height = 0.5\textwidth plus 3cm minus 3cm]{myimage2}
\includegraphics[height = 0.5\textwidth plus 3cm minus 3cm]{myimage3}
\includegraphics[height = 0.5\textwidth plus 3cm minus 3cm]{myimage4}
\end{document}

    The graphicx package interface keys height and width expect a dimension not a glue specification. If you tried out your own code you would see it does not work and that the plus 3cm minus 3cm ends up printed as text. – user4686 Apr 4 '14 at 6:30

As regards your second question: The graphicx package interface keys height and width expect a dimension, not a glue specification. When one tries out your provided code one sees it does not work and that the plus 3cm minus 3cm end up being printed as text.
