Images of the IGV view can be saved in the PNG raster format or the SVG vector format.
Saving images from IGV menus#
To save an image of the whole IGV window below the toolbar:
- Select Save PNG Image... or Save SVG Image... in the main File menu.
To save an image of only the tracks that are together in a panel in the IGV window:
- Right-click on one of the tracks and select Save PNG Image... or Save SVG Image... in the pop-up menu.
Saving images from batch scripts#
Batch scripts can be used to automatically run a series of IGV commands, including saving snapshot images of the IGV window. See the sections on running batch scripts and external control of IGV for more details.
