# how to reduce horizontal space between figures in tabular

I'm using this code

\begin{figure}[ht]

\begin{tabular}{ll}

% after \\: \hline or \cline{col1-col2} \cline{col3-col4} ...
\includegraphics[trim = {3.32cm 10.61cm 3.32cm 10.61cm},clip,width=1.75in]{newresults/th1dis} &\includegraphics[trim = {3.32cm 10.61cm 3.32cm 10.61cm},clip,width=1.75in]{newresults/T1dis}\\
\includegraphics[trim = {3.32cm 10.61cm 3.32cm 10.61cm},clip,width=1.75in]{newresults/th2dis} &\includegraphics[trim = {3.32cm 10.61cm 3.32cm 10.61cm},clip,width=1.75in]{newresults/T2dis}\\
\end{tabular}
\medskip
\caption{my caption.}
\label{fig:figure1}
\end{figure}


now I want to reduce the horizontal space between the figures which are side by side, is it possible ?

• your title asks about tabularx but the example uses tabular. you have 2\tabcolsep spacing which you can avoid by using \begin{tabular}{l@{}l} or simply remove the tabular and have two \includegraphics. Oct 1 at 10:22
There is nothing special about images, here \includegraphics is positioned like a letter such as x. A tabular soecification of ll has \tabcolsep spacing around each column so you could use l@{}l to remove the middle space or locally in the figure use \setlength\tabcolsep{1pt} or whatever length you want.
