# How to embed big size graph in 2 columns format

I use the amcs template

This is the graph I need to add to the paper:

However, its size is too big to fit into one column format. This is my code:

\documentclass{amcs}

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[H]
\includegraphics [scale=0.20]{Figure9Graph5.png}
\caption{Algorithms Running time over testing dataset}
\label{fig:Test5}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


What can I do in order that its content be seen and still match the template format?

• Use figure* instead of figure (mind the asterisk. – Johannes_B Oct 31 '16 at 13:38
• Never use [H] to begin with. Next, do \begin{figure*}<contents>\end{figure*}. You also want to use width=\textwidth instead of scale=0.2. – egreg Oct 31 '16 at 13:39
• By the way, using [H] makes it clear that something dodgy is going on. – Johannes_B Oct 31 '16 at 13:39
• Please, fix the link that points nowhere. – egreg Oct 31 '16 at 13:42
• Thanks to all! Now I get the graph that is crossing the both paper columns is it eligible? In addition, its location is at the head of page and it comes before a graph that has to appear before him. – Avi Oct 31 '16 at 13:49

The amcs class supports figure*:

\documentclass{amcs}

\usepackage{lipsum} % just for the example

\begin{document}

\title{Title}

\correspondingauthor{Fifth AUTHOR}

Address xxx xxx xx xxx xxx\\ e-mail: \url{xxx xx xxx}}

\maketitle

\lipsum[1-3]

\begin{figure*}

\includegraphics[
width=\textwidth,
height=4cm, % for emulating your picture
]{example-image}

\caption{Algorithms Running time over testing dataset}
\label{fig:Test5}

\end{figure*}

\lipsum[1-30]

\end{document}
