1 - Run Embird, it will start in "Manager" mode.

7 - Choose the file format for images in "Save file as type" box.You can choose between .BMP and .JPG formats. File size of image stored in .JPG file is smaller than the file size of image stored in .BMP file. On the other hand it takes more time to create the file with .JPG extension, because it contains compressed image (Picture No. 5).
8 - Finally, click "All" button to create simple documentation of all selected designs. In case you have selected only single design, click "OK" button. Images will be stored in the same folder as the designs, i.e. to "C:\EMBIRD32\FILES" folder in this example (Picture No. 5).
