Is there is a way for a file, .java for example, created in the Eclipse IDE to get exported as an image?

What do you mean as an image? Do you just want a screen shot of the source? – ernie Feb 11 '14 at 22:47
@ernie: Yes, but when I take a screenshot, the resolution is not good. I was wondering if there is way to export the file as an image that keeps the resolution as it is. – skip Feb 11 '14 at 23:23
How are you currently getting your screenshot? what OS? Most screenshot programs will capture at the same resolution as the screen, so your question seems confusing? – ernie Feb 12 '14 at 1:51
@ernia: print screen is giving better resolution but it required me to do the cropping work at my end. Windows 7. – skip Feb 12 '14 at 10:24
Alt-PrtScn will get you the active window. If you want just the text panel, you'll likely need to turn to third-party screenshot tools. – ernie Feb 12 '14 at 16:55
