Saving as a picture

You can save a chart as a picture so that you can use it, for example, in documents or reports and publish them. You can save the entire chart, or a portion of a chart that displays chart items of interest.

To save a chart as a picture:
  1. Click the Publish tab, and then in the Save as Picture group, click one of the following buttons:
    • To save the view that is displayed by the current window, click Current View.
    • To save the entire chart, click Entire Chart.
    Note: When you save a chart as a picture, the following elements of the chart are also saved in the picture:
    • Time bar
    • Theme line icon bars
  2. In the Save as Picture window, navigate to the folder in which you want to save the file.
  3. Enter a file name for the picture and select a picture file type, then click Save.
    You can save your chart as one of the following types of picture file formats:
    • GIF (.gif)
    • JPEG (.jpg)
    • PNG (.png)
    • TIFF (.tif)
    • BMP (.bmp)
    Note: Saving a chart as a BMP can produce large files. If the file is large, a prompt opens confirming that you want to save it as a BMP. If you select No you are returned to the format selection.
