I'm working with MS Project, and I have created a Gantt chart. How would I save a Gantt and PERT file as a GIF image? I did it once, but I cannot find it anymore.

  • Here's one from Superuser. superuser.com/questions/456318/… Cheers – Ray May 13 '14 at 2:57
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about saving images, not project management. Please see help center for the list of topics our site targets. Hope this helps and good luck! :) – jmort253 May 14 '14 at 5:45
  • After discussing on our site's Project Management Meta site, it seems this is indeed on-topic after all. I've edited this a bit to clarify that this is about MS Project, and I've reopened the post. In the future, it's a good idea to be clear in your questions so folks like me don't misunderstand. Hope this helps and thanks for participating! :) – jmort253 May 15 '14 at 1:53

For Microsoft Project 2007, go to Report menu and then Copy Picture.... It will show the following popup:

Choose "To GIF image file" option to save the Gantt chart as a GIF file.

  • Oh yes, my answer (in reference to MS-Project 2010) calls up the same dialog, where I see here (but somehow had never noticed before!) that it includes the means to save directly to GIF! – Marv Mills May 13 '14 at 12:46

I am not aware of a way to directly save to GIF, but I frequently use the "Copy" functionality (Under Clipboard functionality on the Task tab of MS-P 2010) to grab an image snapshot of the project Gantt into the cut buffer, from where it can be pasted into an email, or a Word document, or into Paint to be saved as a JPG or whatever.

If you are on a prior version of MS-Project, the same functionality is there and it is behind the menu button that looks like a little camera.
