I have a request from a client to capture the image of some web pages on a regular basis as a jpeg, gif or similar. I can read the html from the web pages in php but that misses any graphics in the page.
Any idea on how to do this? I did a search and found some Windows based solutions but this needs to run on a unix/php/mysql system.
use some good class for html2pdf conversion and convert your page to pdf (just google, there are tons of these)
then use "convert" command from imagemagick and create image (png for example) from your pdf file
however this will not give you ideal results - i doubt if it will work for flash sites or dhtml/ajax sites
