Graphics Options & Styling
Mathematica provides hundreds of options to control every aspect of the construction and styling of graphics. The options are carefully designed to be both flexible and powerful, and to fit in with Mathematica's sophisticated built-in algorithms for aesthetic optimization.
PlotRange the range of coordinates to include (All for all points)
AspectRatio ratio of overall height to width (Automatic to use raw coordinate values)
ImageSize absolute size of the graphic (Small, Large, number of pixels, ...)
Joined whether to join points into lines
Filling what filling to add under points, curves and surfaces
Mesh what mesh lines or mesh points to draw
Tooltip tooltip specifications for curves or other objects
Frame whether to draw a frame
Axes  ▪ Ticks  ▪ PlotLabel  ▪ FrameLabel  ▪ Background  ▪ ...
Boxed whether to draw a box around the object
RotationAction whether 3D objects should refit or clip when rotated
BoxRatios  ▪ ViewPoint  ▪ SphericalRegion  ▪ FaceGrids  ▪ Lighting  ▪ ...
ColorData hundreds of color schemes (gradients, named collections, etc.)
Red  ▪ Blue  ▪ Blend  ▪ Lighter  ▪ Darker  ▪ Opacity  ▪ ...
