Simple screenshot

Simply use code in the following form on your website:

<img src="//" />

Advanced options

There are also more advanced options, you can resize the image by specifying the width, and you can specify how many pixels of the original website you want to crop. For example:

<img src="//" />

Website screen captures are taken from a 1200x1200 pixel browser. The above code will crop the original screen shot to 600px tall and then resize the image to 100px wide, resulting in an image that is 100px wide 50px tall. See the docs page for a full list of options.

You can use up to 1000 impressions per month completely free, without even signing up!

We stream the initial render as an animated GIF, so your users get content fast. Existing screenshot services make your users wait 10-20 seconds while they hit your URL, wait for it to load, take a screenshot, process it, and send it back to you. We respond immediately with a few frames of a loading spinner, then constant updates of website's realtime render.


Because we stream the website snapshot, we can afford to wait an extra few seconds to make sure we're capturing a full load of every website. You don't have to worry about getting a snapshot taken before your existing onLoad JavaScript completes or your video banner loads.


Every app is different, so we offer many options to secure the requests for your account. If you want something simple, we can authenticate by referer. If you want something more secure, we accept signed requests that have a custom expiry time. Our self-serve admin panel allows you to create and destroy as many keys as you need, whenever you need them.
