    Save it as a picture on your "desktop", or "My Pictures", then go to a site like tinypic and upload it, then cut and paste the link to your post.

    Make sure you resize it smaller!

    You should be able to save a screen shot as a JPG.
     
  5. Click anywhere on the chart you want to save ... while holding the 'Alt' key hit 'Print Screen' .. (that copies the window to the clipboard) ... then open Windows "Paint", hit Cntrl>V to paste it in there, then save as a Jpeg or GIF. The default location should be My Documents>My Pictures ... when you're making your ET post, click "Browse" and go to the folder where your file is saved ... etc. etc.

    Hope that helps.

    whankshat key would i press to do that ,t
     
  7. Which step are you asking about?
     
  8. Do not right click, in TOS click the little printer icon in the upper right hand corner of the chart. You will then see two choices, click on the “Take Picture…” one then a new window will pop up with your chart in it. At the top of that new window click on “Save…” then you can save it to your computer as a .png or .jpg file. You can then add that file to your ET post by clicking the Browse button next to “Attach file” if you just want to attach it, but you have to do something like Surdo said to have the chart actually appear in the post itself.
