Save as image
Matplotlib visualizations would hardly be useful if they could only be viewed by running Python code--many people would be barred from looking at plots if this was the case! Fortunately, Matplotlib includes an API for saving plots in many popular image formats (find the list of supported image formats here).
plt.savefig() function to save the figure as an image. The image file type is inferred from the extension.
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # Save the plot as a 'png' file plt.savefig('my_plot.png') # Save the plot as a 'pdf' file plt.savefig('my_plot.pdf')
