New “Generate Image of Output” Feature in Wolfram|Alpha
We’ve added a new feature that will come in handy for adding information from Wolfram|Alpha into your next blog post or presentation: you can now easily save results pods from Wolfram|Alpha as GIF images.
Here’s a quick walk-through to get you started. First, enter a query into Wolfram|Alpha, such as “1 cup of oatmeal + ½ cup of milk + 1 tsp of sugar“. You can then save results by right-clicking on the pod you want, then clicking on the “Generate image of output” icon that appears in the lower right corner of the popup pod.
Below is an example of a resulting image:
This functionality also allows you to capture any adjustments made to results pages through the use of available options. For example, if you click on the “Show mesh” button when exploring a map of Canada in Wolfram|Alpha, this setting will be preserved when an image of the output is generated.
We hope that you will find this feature valuable the next time you’re preparing a visual presentation, or want to save a particularly interesting result. Are there other kinds of user features would you like to see incorporated into Wolfram|Alpha? Let us know!
