Rendering HTML documents with ShotGraph

ShotGraph can turn Web pages and local HTML documents to images. You can use this feature for building screenshots and thumbnails of webpages.

The possibility to render HTML documents is provided by the ReadUrl method. Using this method, your scripts and any other applications can load content of webpages as images into ShotGraph imagespace and perform with them the same manipulations as with usual images from disk files. For example, you can save images to different graphic formats, resize images, perform custom drawings over images, apply semitransparency and many others.

If you are website administrator then you can enable or disable the ReadUrl method. Moreover, you can enable rendering websites and local HTTP documents separately.

See the ReadUrl method description for short script examples making screenshot and thumbnail of webpage.
