[Tex/LaTex] How to shift graphics/adjust placement of figure with \includegraphics


I composed a diagram that takes up the entire sheet of paper in landscape mode, called diagram.tex (compiled it to generate pdf). I'm trying to include that into an article, but only half of it is showing; the bottom half is cut off by the right end of the paper.

I was able to get it in the proper orientation by using


But because the bottom half of it is cut off, I need some sort of option where I can do something like this:

\includegraphics[angle=90, shift left = 5cm]{diagram.pdf}

to pull the rest of the image left (or up, depending on how you're looking at it).

So how can I move the figure around?

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I'm using the following documentclass and packages in my paper:

\usepackage{tikz, graphicx}


This is not an issue with pushing it past the margins. Half of the picture is not on the paper (sort of like if you stuck half of your left hand behind the left side of your monitor). I need to pull the paper left (just like you would shift your hand left to see it).

\includegraphics makes a box that is positioned the same way \mbox{} or A are positioned. If you want to move it 3cm to the left use


The reason we use \hspace* instead of \hspace is that at beginning of a line, white glue is discarded, so any white space added by the normal \hspace would have no effect.
