    What would be the best way to:

    1) Generate a chart

    2) Convert it to an image

    3) Save that chart image to a folder on the server

    #1 is done easily enough but I have been unable to find any documentation how how I can make #2 and #3 happen and any help would be most appreciated!

    Please accept my apologies for the delayed response.

    You can start off by generating an image from the chart as demonstrated here.
        chart.exportImage().done(function(data) {
    In the context of the done function data would be a base-64 encoded image.

    You can proceed and save it on the server:
        chart.exportImage().done(function(data) {
                dataURI: data,
                fileName: "chart.png",
                forceProxy: true,
                proxyURL: "..."

    If the proxy handler, for example, returns a 204 NO CONTENT the file won't be saved on the client.

    I hope this helps.
