Create an Image Snapshot of a Website Online

This content 9 years old. Please, read this page keeping its age in mind along with the fact technology changes fast and the information on this page me be outdated, not best practice, or plain wrong.

I have a little tool I created that will take a URL and convert the content at that URL into a JPEG image.

I’m not sure it’ll be useful and was only created/hacked together because of an idea that I had that I have since abandoned.  The backend uses wkhtmltoimage-amd64 to do the magic the rest is PHP handler.

I have added the ability to choose width of the snapshot using “width” paramater.  For example:  https://techish.net/pub/websitesnapshot/?url=http://www.google.com/&width=640

Note that the width value must be less than 2048.

You can see other people’s images by adding images/ to the end of the above URL.
