### 10.3. Manipulating graphical objects in LaTeX

In addition to the \includegraphics command, the graphics and graphicx packages implement a number of graphical manipulation commands.

With the exception of the \rotatebox command, which also supports a key/value pair syntax in the graphicx package, the syntax for these commands is identical in both packages.

#### 10.3.1. Scaling a LaTeX box

The \scalebox command lets you magnify or reduce text or other LaTeX material by a scale factor.

The first of its arguments specifies the factor by which both dimensions of the material are to be scaled. The following example shows how this works.
