    chess image software

    Hi all

    Does anyone know of any software that can produce high-quality chessboard diagrams? I know of plenty that produce low-res pics for internet use, but I need higher quality. I used to use one years ago that was designed by some French guy, but I don't think it exists any more.

    Cheers and thanks

    If you use Latex then it has a package which handles chess diagrams called diagram. If you are intending to produce a document in .pdf or .ps format then you could use Latex for the whole thing.

    However, depending on your needs, this may be suboptimal solution and these is an overhead in coming to grips with Latex.
