%% This can work good
h=figure;
subplot(111),imshow(image_name),title('image');
set(h,'papersize',[5.1 3.2]);
print(h,'image_name','-dpdf')

Although Friedrich's answer here: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/12987-how-to-save-a-matlab-graphic-in-a-right-size-pdf#answer_17755 provides a clean solution, It still leave some extra white spaces.
I personally prefer to print the file to eps format. It leaves absolutely no extra space
print(gcf, 'filename', '-depsc')
And then export the eps file to pdf using epstopdf (command-line tool available with the installation of latex). If you don't have epstopdf installed, you can use this link: https://www.zamzar.com/convert/eps-to-pdf/ to convert the files to pdf.
The following image shows the difference between both methods. First is according to Friedrich's answer, second, when it is created using the above method.
