Design & UX
Dear Graphics Gurus,
I need charting software that creates sharp lines. All the free software I could find either had poor selection of colors or created fuzzy images. Know of any quality inexpensive charting software?
Is this for use on a computer or creating from something like php on a website?
Oh yeah, sorry, jpg, png, or gif, website.
I tried a couple of pieces of code a few years ago and everything was to complicated for what I wanted which was a simple line chart. I wrote a piece of code using Imagemagick and was going to write the code so anyone could use it but it started to get complicated very quickly and it died a death.
What sort of charts did you want to make as you could use GD or imagemagick.
EDIT: I have just looked back and found some of the code - 2010
I've never used it myself but highcharts comes to mind.
I couldn't get anything to work with highcharts. I need some nice looking pie charts.
chartJS seems like a great tool for creating charts like this:
Sam's highcharts looks good. Photoshop is too expensive for most with an occasional need for charting. I ended up using http://www.onlinecharttool.com/ . When you start out, you have to choose a chart type then scroll down, make 2 more choices (or not), then hit the next button. In June made these charts with it - http://actualcures.com/heart-attack-medication-results.html It took a while to get what I wanted but I stayed with it because I like the separated wedge look.
