How to take a site screenshot

Some methods used to take screenshot from a website:
Best method in my testes:
It uses Webkit rendering engine to capture the web page layout. Works with flesh (parameter --plugins=on). Command line:
./CutyCapt --url= --plugins=on --max-wait=15000 --out=example.png
xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0, 1024x768x24" CutyCapt --url= --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 site-screenshot.png
It works but the problem is that the generated page screenshot file had missing images, missing flash and some layout errors.
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: : "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.
