I would like to reduce the page margins in my document only for those pages which include a figure embedded using the [p] option, in order to have some more space for my figures, as in:

\begin{figure}[p]
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{filename}
\end{figure}

A minimum working example is not feasible as this would require an image to be embedded, but I hope the question will be clear enough nonetheless.

  • to make an MWE with images, you could use the filename example-image-a, among a few others. – Runar Jun 29 '16 at 12:15

    What to do with headers and footers in these figure pages? – Ignasi Jun 29 '16 at 12:21
  • @RunarTrollet Worth mentioning that the example-images so often used are associated with the mwe package. – Steven B. Segletes Jun 29 '16 at 12:30

    @StevenB.Segletes don't need the mwe package for that. graphicx is enough. – Runar Jun 29 '16 at 12:54

The easiest thing to do is to place an oversized image inside of a box that is the normal \textwidth in size.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{figure}[ht]
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-A}
\end{figure}
\begin{figure}[p]
\makebox[\textwidth]{\includegraphics[width=1.3\textwidth]{example-image-A}}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

enter image description here

If you need captioning, one would need to know if the caption is also to be oversized or not. Below, I show oversized captioning. I place an oversized minipage into the normal width \makebox.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{figure}[ht]
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-A}
\end{figure}
\begin{figure}[p]
\makebox[\textwidth]{\begin{minipage}{1.3\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-A}

\caption{\protect\lipsum[2]}
\end{minipage}}
\end{figure}
\end{document}
