Get rid of the white space around matlab figure's pdf output

I'd like to use PDF versions of my matlab plots in a LaTeX document. I'm saving the figures using the "saveas" command with the PDF option but I get huge white space around my plots in the pdf files. Is this normal? How can I get rid of it? Automatically, of course, since I have "a lot" of plots.

Exporting Figures for Publication is a good starting point. Instead of -deps use -dpdf for pdf output.

You can fix the bounding box issue using the code below.

set(gcf, 'PaperSize', [6.25 7.5]);
set(gcf, 'PaperPositionMode', 'manual');
set(gcf, 'PaperPosition', [0 0 6.25 7.5]);

set(gcf, 'PaperUnits', 'inches');
set(gcf, 'PaperSize', [6.25 7.5]);
set(gcf, 'PaperPositionMode', 'manual');
set(gcf, 'PaperPosition', [0 0 6.25 7.5]);

set(gcf, 'renderer', 'painters');
print(gcf, '-dpdf', 'my-figure.pdf');
print(gcf, '-dpng', 'my-figure.png');
print(gcf, '-depsc2', 'my-figure.eps');
