I have a very tall image (591 x 8383) which I want to put as Appendix in my Latex document. How can I place this picture vertically aligned on a single (really big) page?

I have tried


This just shows the complete image scaled down so it fits on one standard latex page. If i try it without the fitpaper argument it is the size it should be but it gets cut off at the point where it would go beyond one page.


  • You can use the graphicx package and then in the line where you want to insert the file, write: \includegraphics[height=\textheight]{images/ctt2.pdf} that should help you with the size of the image. – Aradnix Aug 22 '14 at 21:02

    @Aradnix if I understand the OP right, he does not want to scale the picture, but to produce and oversized page? – greyshade Aug 22 '14 at 21:12
  • @greyshade That's right, and I was thinking also in the KOMAscript bundle for that. – Aradnix Aug 22 '14 at 21:16

If I understand the question correctly and you want to change the page size for one page to fit the image onto it, there's two options documented here.

They basically are using one of the KOMA (scr) classes and using:


or (if using pdflatex only) changing page dimensions with:

Normal page
\eject \pdfpagewidth=3in \pdfpageheight=10in

Tall page
\eject \pdfpagewidth=10in \pdfpageheight=3in

Wide page
