2. Open the board options menu in the top right corner.


3. Click 'Export'.


4.  Choose 'Image' from the export options.


5. Depending on your preference, choose the png or jpg export.

*when choosing 'Include branch icons' the icons will be shown on branches only as images


6.  Once exported you will have the option to open the image and save it to your preferred location.


7. The whole map will be included in the image. Below is an example ( this image has been scaled down to fit the page). 


Exporting Branches as an Image

You also have the option of exporting an individual branch as an image, or exporting a branch and all of it's children. 

1. To export an individual branch as an image, right-click on the branch to open the context menu.

2. Then go to 'Export' where you have Image and PDF options.

3. When choosing 'Image', you will then be able to choose whether you export as a PNG or JPG. You can also choose to include all the children branches of the branch you have selected in the image. If you only want to export that one branch, untick 'Include Children'.

4. Below is an example of a JPG export that included the children of the branch I had selected.

5. When choosing 'Export' and then ''PDF', there will be an option to export the branch as a PDF image or PDF document. The PDF image export doesn't include the child branches.
