ImagePadding

ImagePadding
is an option for graphics functions that specifies what absolute extra padding should be left for extended objects such as thick lines and annotations such as tick and axis labels.
Noneleave no padding
Allleave enough padding for all objects that are present
mthe same padding on all sides
{{left,right},{bottom,top}}different padding on different sides
  • With PlotRangeClipping->True, objects such as thick lines are still clipped at the edge of the plot range region, even if image padding has been specified. Annotations such as tick and axis labels are not clipped in this case.
Leave no padding outside of the plot range:
