Which software to use for creating such Chart Snapshots?

Please have a look at the attached snapshots. I want to know which software would help in making such detailed snapshots in an efficient manner. All this could be done inside MS Paint as well, by drawing each single price candlestick bar with hand and then arranging them one by one, but that will take huge amount of time and effort. I am looking for some tool which could help in doing this easily.

Something that will help in –
- Preparing the individual price bars / candlesticks like Doji, Hammer and Hanging Man etc. by changing the size of candlesticks accordingly.
- Arranging those individual price bars / candlesticks in different formations to express different chart patterns like – Head and Shoulders, Double Bottom and Top,
- Writing notes and comments on those patterns in the same snapshot

Please note that I do not have to arrange the price bars in the exact same patterns that are available on the internet, otherwise I would have copied them from some site. But instead I want to use this tool to express my own trading ideas in a visual manner.

Please suggest any tools that you are aware of, which can help in creating such charts.

Thanks for any help

I've used Paint Shop Pro since it first came out. It has its own screen capture tool, but I've found it easier and faster to just use Print Screen on the keyboard and paste it into PSP, at which point I can do whatever I like with it. Examples are shown on my thread.

I understand that PSP isn't/wasn't as good after it got bought by Corel, but I have no personal knowledge of that as I'm still using the version I had before the Corel buyout.

The best tool I've found for screenshots is TechSmith's SnagIt. It also works great with futures.io (formerly BMT). It is just one click for me, and it automatically uploads to screencast, automatically pastes the URL in the clipboard, so all I have to do is paste it on futures.io (formerly BMT) and wrap it in screencast bbcode.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks for sharing, this looks pretty good although I'm too invested into SnagIt to switch personally. But for others this looks good.

Thank you so much for your replies guys. There is no doubt that SnagIt is a Great Tool and I am myself a big fan of it. But doing such work within snagit editor will take a lot of time. Therefor vector graphic software look like to be better for this work.

With Regards

Yes Macan. I found that such work can be best done in vector graphics software.

One can choose a specific software based on his/her requirements - https://www.google.co.in/?gws_rd=ssl#q=vector+graphics+software
