What is a it and how does it work?

The Webpage Screenshot Utility is a tool that allows you to take screenshots of webpages. It can be used for various purposes, such as taking pictures of webpages for research or for taking screenshots of websites for documentation purposes.

The utility works by launching a headless Google Chrome browser within a linux environment. Once the browser is launched, it will take a screenshot of the requested webpage. The resulting image will be in .jpg format.

It can also be used for taking screenshots of webpages that are dynamically generated.

Please note our developers actively monitor errors and screenshot results to constantly improve this utility. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact Tristan McGowan on LinkedIn
