Hello all,

I was wondering if there is an easy way to save the plots I get in sac?
Saving an image in png/gif/jpeg would work but I couldn't find such
options in the sac's help.

Thanks,
Igor

    Hi Igor,

    SAC does not have that capability by itself. It can be done using SAC
    and Imagemagick, which provides a tool called convert.

    Take a look at this:

      Kuang,

      Thanks a lot. I am going to try that.

        If I understand your question correctly, you can save plots you made in SAC to
        an EPS file.

        1. First you must save the plot to a file. After you get the plot you like, enter

        bd sgf

        Then repeat your plot command that had produced your display. You will not see
        it, but it will produce a file in the directory you are in named f001.sgf.

        You can then convert the .sgf file to a Postscript or EPS file using programs
        and scripts provided with SAC. There is some discussion in utils/README_utils
        (in version 101.2). There are also comments about how one can make a PDF file,
        if you have the right script. Making an EPS file requires ghostscript. Not
        needed to make a simple postscript file.

        To convert the file to JPG, PNG, etc., you need another program. On a MAC that
        can be done in preview.

        Let me know if that is not clear -- or if you had a different question.

          Arthur,

          You understood my question correctly, thank you.
          Your method is similar to the one mentioned by Kuang. We tried it and it
          works!

          Thanks again,
          Igor
