    How to make and set up a screenshot

    When chatting on forums and discussing the current situation on the market, people often need to support their point of view with graphical objects (a screenshot), where traders can depict various levels and show the expected direction of the trend with the help of lines and arrows on a chart of a trading platform.

    There are plenty of paid and free applications for making screenshots. All of them are easy-to-use.

    Let us take as an example the Lightshot app that is available for Windows/Mac, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera.

    You can download it, following this link and choosing the necessary OS

    How to install the app:

    Open the executable file and choose the language:

    Click OK to confirm your choice.

    Then you should accept the terms of the license agreement and click Next:

    After all commands are executed, a notification about the end of installation will pop up. Click Done to complete this process.

    To make a shot of a screen, launch the application and push the PrntScr (Print Screen) key.

    After the app is called up by the PrntScr key, you can capture the necessary part of a chart on a trading platform as shown in the picture below.

    Click the picture to zoom it in.

    After the picture is captured, you can draw the resistance and support lines, channels, and other objects on it. For that, use the button with a line which is located on the toolbar on the left. If you need to show the direction of a price movement, click the button with an arrow on the toolbar.

    Here are the tools available in the menu of the app:

    With the Lightshot app, you can make screenshots of png, bmp, jpg formats. Jpg and png formats are more preferable for posting on the forum.

    Then you should save the made screenshot on your computer and upload it to the forum. To learn how to upload the screenshot to the forum, read the manual How to upload files and attach pictures to a message.

    Besides, there is a video tutorial on how to use the application and the FAQ section on the website.
