matplotlib.pyplot.clim

matplotlib.pyplot.clim(vmin=None, vmax=None)

Set the color limits of the current image.

To apply clim to all axes images do:

clim(0, 0.5)

If either vmin or vmax is None, the image min/max respectively will be used for color scaling.

If you want to set the clim of multiple images, use, for example:

for im in gca().get_images():
    im.set_clim(0, 0.05)
