Screenshot a Web Page from the Command Line

f you ever need to take a screenshot of a website then CutyCapt is probably worth a gander:

CutyCapt is a small cross-platform command-line utility to capture WebKit’s rendering of a web page into a variety of vector and bitmap formats, including SVG, PDF, PS, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, GIF, and BMP.

Doesn’t seem to be able to pick up Flash objects though and save them (which makes sense, as it’s just a simple renderer based on WebKit), but it’s still pretty handy.

  1. I’ve been using Jing for screen captures (and screen video) here at work. Dead simple and very quick. It’s fast enough that you can be on a support call, take a screenshot, tag it up and email / post, then continue the support cal. There are a couple of things still to iron out, but the speed makes it very useful indeed.
