Exporting MS-Windows Graphics to the Web using HyperSnap
Examples from Excel,
Tides and Currents,
Many programs running under MS-Windows draw beautiful graphics to
the screen. To put these images on the Web, they must be converted to .gif
or .jpg files. These formats are widely used under Unix and on the network,
but not so widely in the MS-Windows environment.
One utility to transfer images from the monitor screen to a disk
file is the
program HyperSnap, by Hyperionics
Greg Kochaniac, author. (Thanks to Robert Johnson for finding this
solution to the Excel-to-gif problem.) This is a 32-bit program, and so
runs only under Win 95, Win NT, or Win 3.11 with the System32 add-on.
Its operation is pretty self-explanatory. It makes .gif, .jpg, or .bmp
One warning: Files saved by DOS applications to Unix file systems
often need to have the permissions changed before Netscape can read
