One quick and easy way to edit a plot is by generating the plot in R and then using Inkspace or any other software to edit it. We can save some valuable time if we know some basic edits that can be applied on a plot by setting them in a
par() function. All the available options to edit a plot can be studied in detail by typing
?par in the command window.
In the following code, I have highlighted some commonly used parameters:
x=c(1:10) y=c(1:10) par(bg = "#646989", las = 1, col.lab = "black", col.axis = "white",bty = "n",cex.axis = 0.9,cex.lab= 1.5) plot(x,y, pch = 20, xlab = "fake x data", ylab = "fake y data")
par() function, we have set the background color using the
bg = argument. ...
