Until now everything has been fine, but now I have a special plot which 
is formed by 3 separate plots joined with the instruction "layout":
> nf <- layout(matrix(c(2,0,1,3),2,2,byrow=TRUE), c(3,1), c(1,3), TRUE);
> layout.show(nf);

Anyone could tell me how to change the size of the image?

Use dev.copy() instead (it redraws the figure, see ?dev.copy), or even 
better use the jpeg() device directly, if you are on Windows.
