As others have pointed out you don't, not directly at least.

However, if you know a little html you can hack things together using
-log2html- to convert your smcl log-file to html and include the saved
graphs (exported as png) in-line with the rest of your log.

I remember doing this in the past, but for some reason also remember
having some problems with -log2html- parsing html written in a do-file
(and hence echoed in the smcl log), but I'm quite busy today so don't
have time to check this out.

For more info on -log2html- see -ssc desc log2html-
