How to export images and charts

To export images from Keshif, you currently need to utilize a screen-capture tool or a browser extension.


Quick Screen-Capture On Mac OS

Using the keyboard shortcut is the simplest way to capture a specific region/chart on a webpage.

Press Shift-Command (⌘)-4 on your keyboard. The cursor will change into crosshair. You can click and drag to identify the screen capture area.  The screenshot is automatically saved to your desktop. For more information: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201361


Screen-Capture on Windows

You can find the tools and keyboard shortcuts in official Microsoft help pages here.

Windows Edge also has capture and annotation tools. Read the official description here, and an unofficial blog post here.


Screen-Capture on Chrome Browser

To capture the full dashboard:
  • Open developer console (clicking View -> Developer -> Developer Tools, or using keyboard shortcut Option + Command + I in MacOS, F12 or Control+Shift+I in Windows/Linux)
  • Open Command Menu (shortcut: Cmd + Shift + P in MacOS, or Control+Shift+P in Windows/Linux) 
  • Type "screenshot" 
  • Select "Capture full size screenshot" or "Capture screenshot". 
  • This will download an image of the full current Keshif website. Read more about this approach here.
Using a Chrome Extension

We have tested the open-source Screenshot Extension found here. We can recommend using this extension for its convenience and annotation features.


Screen-Capture on Firefox Browser

  • Open Web Developer tools
  • Open Settings tab
  • Click the option to enable "Take a screenshot of the entire page"
  • Firefox will add a camera icon to the developer toolbar letting you capture screenshots with one-click. ( Info).
