I am a beginner in designing a java application and I posted this message because I knew you guys can help me. Just want to ask if how could you save a canvas in a java application as an image (i.e .gif, .jpeg, etc.)?
Could you gave me a simple and brief example for doing this?
In my case i needed the image of a GUI as a .gif file to insert in the help menu.For this you can capture the screen with shift+printscreen and edit it with some editor like paint and then save the image.Hope this is useful to you.
