    Question Print Screen

    Hi,
    is there a way to make a printscreen from a webpage.

    We are making a study on birds and need to save radar images every hour. That page is changing every 15 minutes and we cannot just save the page to a file.

    What we need is an image from the page to be saved on our computer. I thought making a webpage with a script that would save the screen, but I dont know how to do it.

    Thanks for any help

    Is this your webpage or someone else's? Can you modify it? What software is the server using? Will anyone other than you need to access this page?

    Doing that without having to click a button is tough. HOWEVER!

    There is a program that does such a thing. You can download it here:

    Time captrue software

    They also have other software and in packages, including AVI-video capturing!

    Most of these are shareware, so if you don't want to pay, or are using it only for a limited time, you may get away with it. But if this is long term then buying one of the packages might just be your thing.

    View Packages and Prices

    I found this with a quick Google search, there may be open source/freeware ones also... but don't count on it... finding an automatic screen capture program was already tough! LOL

    Default re print screen

    I have done a webpage in a frame on my computer which updates itself every 15 minutes. Now I want to save that page every hour, 24/24 for about 14 weeks in spring and in autumn for a scientific bird study.

    Of course I dont have a budget for buying any software. This is why I need to get a free script to save this webpage every hour.

    Yes, the page is on my own computer and I will be the only one to visit that page. But if I put it on my server anyone could visit the page.

    Thanks

    A script that has recently been brought to my attention, html2jpg, as part of a script (or, preferably, as a cron job) will do what you want. It requires a UNIX-based operating system running X11, with Mozilla installed.

    Hmm. You could try Cygwin.
    Why is it that saving a copy of the page to hard drive won't suffice?

    Twey, that's all what I need, a copy of the page on my computor every hour. But every hour, the script has to save the page with a different filename.

    Is it just this dynamically-generated image you need, or the whole page? And this image, it's always at the same URL?
