    I have to 2 questions to ask you:

    1. What is a good way to export a pcb designed in Protel to an image file
    (gif, jpeg, bmp, etc)?

    2. When designing an amp, how do you test it? How would you set up the input
    and output?

    Thanks

  2. maybe you could print to pdf using a third party software like broadgun pdf
    machine then surely there is a utility to convert pdf to a picture or maybe
    pdf would be good enough for you

    Now that a Python utility called gerber2pdf.py is available, and seems to
    work properly on my Gerber files (the previous release had a couple of bugs)
    I'll be using that with the Pulsonix PCB software I use. It's available
    here:

    PDF files have the advantage that they are scalable, and are easily printed
    without problems.
