Automate generating website screenshots

Manually creating website screenshots for your app or website is exhausting and wastes a lot of time which is better spent focusing on your product or service. Especially if you are managing a large database of them or you are enabling users to quickly share links to their community.

Hide Screenshots for Adult Content

We can automatically blur screenshots for sites that are categorized as having adult content. Simply pass in an option with your API call telling us to hide these types of screenshots.

Highly customizable API Calls

Depending of the layout of your content you may need different image sizes of website thumbnails or even different screen viewport sizes. Simply customize the API call to fit your needs and Web Shrinker will instantly generate a pixel perfect screenshot.

Quickly capture full page screenshots

Sometimes you need to take a screenshot that is larger than the viewable area, known as a full page screenshot. A simple query will return the full page screenshot of the web page so you’re ready to share it with your users. It’s also perfect for previewing websites on various screen sizes.

Once you request a screenshot for a new website, Web Shrinker will surf to the destination site, generate the screenshot, and keep it cached and ready to be delivered to you quickly. If you need a new version of the screenshot, simply request it with a single API call.
