Remove margins from PDF files


When writing articles in LaTeX, it happens that you want to include a diagram created with gnuplot. Gnuplot creates an EPS output, but sometimes it leaves too much white space (margin) around the figure. How to get rid of that?


If someone knows a better solution, let me know. Here is how I do it. First, convert the EPS to PDF. Then use Adobe Acrobat Professional to remove the margins: open the PDF, then go to Document -> Crop Pages… Here choose the option Remove White Margins, then OK.

If you want to rotate a PDF: go to Document -> Rotate Pages…

    If you have the eps file, just use epstopdf to convert to pdf, it will do it without the margins.
