  • capture screenshot for thumbnail.

    Hi,

    No idea where to start with this one but here goes....

    I want to make a thumbnail of one of my sites, dynamically. When I publish a site to my server, I want to create a thumbanil of it for storage and subsequent use as a button in the cms system.

    I reckon that if browershots.org can do it, it must be possible so can any of you please send me in a useful direction. Can it be done in perl? maybe I should use something else like JS? I ask in this forum coz I would prefer to use perl. despite the head banging aspect; I actually enjoy perl.

    webthumb. I try it some time ago, I was not very happy and I give up:

    As far as I know there is no other solution.

    Edit: see REQUIREMENTS for reasons

    best regards

      Thanks oesxyl.

      I read about perlmagick a bit and it may be suitable for when building my own program to do it. we shall see.

        you can't take a screenshot using perlmagic you need a render engine or a video device. Perlmagic can be used only for processing and the bigest problem is how you get the page picture.
