[sharechat] Posting Charts

From: Phaedrus <>

 The easiest way to post charts on ShareChat is by using a Screen Capture 
programme. This will work regardless of the source of your charts - website, 
MetaStock or any other charting software. 

 An excellent screen capture utility can be downloaded from   It is called 
"ScreenHunter" (323KB) and will run on Win 95/98/NT4/ME/2000 and XP. This 
programme is free. There are no catches, no ads, and no time limits. It can 
capture the active window, the full screen, or any user defined rectangle. This 
last option is particularly good as it enables you to select only the actual 
graph, leaving out any toolbars etc. The file can be saved as BMP, JPG or GIF.

 To post on ShareChat, use the GIF format. This gives small files that are 
easily read by any system. A typical chart would give a BMP file of 1200KB, JPG 
would take 70KB, but GIF format would take less than 15KB. Simply add the .GIF 
file as an attachment to your ShareChat post.
