Oh wow, that turned out really good. Can you give a step by step that process in a quick list? I don't have Ifranview, but was wondering how that would work out in XnView. I'll grab Irfanview if it comes right down to it.
Irfanview can automatically turn vector content to bitmap with copy/paste. I just copy the graph, paste it into Irfanview, then copy it from Irfanview and Paste it into GIMP and do the cleanup in GIMP. I still prefer the vector route (using Inkscape). Copy and paste into Inkscape, set the pagesize to equal the image (Image size will be much bigger; trust me), ungroup and removed the junk (I do most of this in Excel but still the background and border has to be removed) and then save the SVG file and open it up in GIMP. Either way will work though. I'm now almost a Geek. lol
Yeah Molly; my hairs going fast (especially trying to figure all this stuff out the last few days; lol). Glad you liked the result too.
