I have charts made with the old Windows Reunion program, long ago, and now I have the successor Generations 8.5a program on my Windows Vista machine, and the program and the charts work fine.(Vista is no problem!)
Now I want to put charts into my genealogy website, and I am looking for advice on the best way to do this.The options seem to be PDF or JPG or BMP and possibly EMF.
However, I don’t know how to save a chart as a PDF file.
In Easy Chart’s File menu, I see that I can Save Graphic File.There does not seem to be a PDF option.If I Save Graphic and choose Bittmap, I find that I can link that file to my website and it will work.However, the file seems to be Very Large and the quality of the chart is not very good.I also found that I could save the BMP file as a JPG, and that is a much smaller file but still the quality is not very good.
Under Save Graphic File, I can also choose Extended Metafile, but I can’t figure out what that does, or even where to find it if I save it.
Is there some way to save a chart as a PDF file, or some other method that would permit an easily viewable chart to be posted on a website?
