How to take a site screenshot


Some methods used to take screenshot from a website:
 
Best method in my testes:
 
CutyCapt
It uses Webkit rendering engine to capture the web page layout. Works with flesh (parameter --plugins=on). Command line:
./CutyCapt --url=http://ed.conpet.gov.br --plugins=on --max-wait=15000 --out=example.png
or
xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0, 1024x768x24" CutyCapt --url=http://postbit.com/ --plugins=on --delay=10 --out=example.png
 
This is the user agent created by the CutyCapt request:
 "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686) AppleWebKit/534.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) Qt/4.8.1 Safari/534.34"
 
Other methods to capture site screenshots:
 
* wkhtmltopdf, had to be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\wkhtmltopdf
It's command line to take screenshot, e.g.:
./wkhtmltoimage.exe --load-error-handling ignore http://postbit.com site-screenshot.png
It works but the problem is that the generated page screenshot file had missing images, missing flash and some layout errors.
 
* webkit2png.py
Could not work under windows or linux. Maybe works on Mac.
The script gives error message: "Cannot find pyobjc library files. Are you sure it is installed?"
 

Sites that take screenshots:
snapito.com : "Full length website screenshots" Enter URL and snap to generate full resolution site screenshot png file. It has API to generate screenshot in many sizes.
