    How do I create a picture of a chart? I am using Tradestation.

    I did a lot of searching to avoid asking this stupid question - I figured out how to attach a pic, I always knew how to imbed a pic into a thread, but I just don't know how to create a pic of one chart from my screen! Sorry for the question, and thanks for the answer! I'm sure the answer is around here somewhere, but I can't find it.

    I can create a pic from bloomberg, but not from Tstation.

    1. Ctrl + Print Screen
    2. open mspaint
    3. ctrl +v
    4. select the area of interest.
    5. ctrl + c
    6. set image attributes 1 pixel width, 1 pixel height.
    7. ctrl +v

    There are also other ways like using "snagit".

    Left click file, left click "save as picture", save as, name it, and you have a saved screen shot in "my pictures", or where ever you saved it!

    el surdo

    Thanks for the replies! Cutting and pasting with ms paint will work for now until I try something a little fancier like snagit... oops, looks like I have to save file as a jpeg as a bmp file won't work. . :)

    seems like there is too much empty space around the chart.

    I learned how to do this from another thread:

  7. I wish I could post charts. It is very difficult for me to do anything technical.

    What do you not know how to do? This forum has a very nice feature that lets you attach files from your own computer. At the bottom of the reply box you see:

    and there is a box with a browse button that lets you look for files on your computer. If you have a picture of a chart you can attach it in that way to your post on ET.
  9. Using SnagIt is not terribly difficult at all. I would suggest trying the trial -
