FCS Express: Publication-Quality Graphics

More Testimonials

“To "end users" the ability to export directly into PowerPoint is a substantial benefit ”

- Ralph Rossi
Manager, Flow Facility

Most times, when using FCS Express, and you want to export your analysis, you can choose to export it directly to PowerPoint, to a PDF file, or even to Excel. However, when preparing for a publication or poster, you will often need to transfer a high-resolution image of a single plot into a document. For example, if you are writing a report about your experiment in Microsoft™ Word, you may want to insert some diagrams showing your analysis.  

FCS Express makes it easy to do this, by featuring beautiful, publication-quality graphics, using the Copy As Picture function. 

First, you can choose what you want the export format to be:  JPEG, Bitmap, Metafile, GIF, PNG, or TIF. You can also decide what quality you want the picture to be, by changing the resolution and the JPEG quality setting.

Choose from six popular image formats  
Manually input the resolution to customize image size
