The Image Stamp indicator is similar to the Logo tool, allowing you to add an image to your chart. The major difference between Image Stamp and the Logo tool is that Image Stamp is treated as a Static Tool when used within a page layout so that it is saved on a code by code basis.

*Note: This tool is only available with a Professional or Enterprise Services subscription (not Trader Services).*
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Publishing tool group, and left-click on the chart on where you wish to add the tool. If you have not yet set a default image you will be prompted to select one (.Png .JPG .BMP). Once selected, Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings.

Actions & Properties



Add to Toolbar: Adds the selected tool to your custom toolbar.

Apply Settings to All: When multiple Image Stamp tools have been applied to a chart, page or workbook, this action can be used to apply the settings of the one selected to other instances of the tool. This is a great time saver if an adjustment is made to the tool - such as line colour - as this allows all the other Image Stamp tools in the chart, page or entire workbook to be updated instantly.

Copy Tool: Allows you to copy the selected tool, which can then be pasted onto a different chart window.

Move to Back: If the tool is displaying in front of other tools or indicators clicking this action will move the tool view to the background.

Move to Front: If the tool is displaying behind other tools or indicators on the chart, clicking this action will bring the tool to the forefront.

Restore Default Settings: Click this action if you have adjusted the default settings of the tool, and wish to return to the standard properties originally installed with Optuma.

Save Settings as Default: If you have adjusted any of the tool’s properties (colour, for example) you can save the adjustments as your new default setting. Each time you apply a new Image Stamp to a chart, the tool will display using the new settings.

Delete: Deletes the tool from the chart.



Tool Name: Allows you to adjust the name of the tool, as it’s displayed in the Structures Panel.

File Name: Displays the location of the Image file saved on your system. Clicking on the button allows you to select a different file.

Lock Perspective: The original Width and Height of the image are maintained as the image is resized. Unticking this checkbox allows you to manually enter in a different height and width for the image.

Size: This slider bar allows you to adjust the size of the image.

Tool Transparency: Use this slider bar to adjust the transparency of the tool. Moving the slider to the left will increase the transparency of the tool.

Visible: Un-tick this checkbox to hide the tool from the chart.
