When communicating at a forum and discussing the current situation on the market, it often becomes necessary to supplement the communication with a graphical accompaniment (screenshot) at which traders indicate different levels and show the prospective direction in the form of lines and arrows on the trading terminal chart. To remove the screenshot, there are many applications, both paid and free, that are quite easy to work with. Consider a free Lightshot application that is available for Windows / Mac, Chrome, Firefox, IE & Opera. You can download the following link: https://app.prntscr.com/en/index.html ,
1. Choose your OS (Windows or Mac):
2. Open the downloaded file and then click "Yes" to start the installation process.
3. Choose your language and then click "OK":
4. Next, you will be asked to accept the license agreement, just click "Agree" and then click "Next":
5. After all the installation process is completed just click the "Finish" button.
To take a screen shot of the trading terminal, you need to launch the application and press the "PrntScr" key on the keyboard just like the picture below:
After pressing the Print Screen button you will be able to select the area that you want to capture/save as picture as shown in the figure below:
After selecting the area that you want to capture you will be able to edit the picture by adding trend lines or arrow etc. and you can find all the options on the side of the selected area to the left of the application toolbar. If you need to specify the direction of the price in the form of arrows on the graph, use the button with the "arrow on the left" sign on the application toolbar. Available tools in the application menu:
When using the Lightshot application , you will get screenshots of the format .png, .bmp, .jpg. For the forum, we recommend using the .jpg and .png formats.
The application site has a video instruction for installing and using the application, as well as the FAQ section, which is located at the bottom of the site.
The resulting screenshot can be saved on your computer and uploaded to the forum. How to upload a screenshot to the forum, you can read in the topic How to insert pictures and upload files to the message:
