    Does anyone know of, or recommend a good Website Thumbnail Generator script (in php), for creating mini screenshots of websites?


    I found one but it only works with windows hosting. :(

    if your server is started on Windows - is trivial

    I don't get your first sentence.

    I googled for:
    PHP GD web page thumbnail
    PHP GD web page screenshot

    and some other similar searches, but the only php examples I've been able to find create thumbnails from existing full size images from a folder on the file system.

    The only others I've found use IECapt.exe and require a windows OS to execute.

    Maybe I should try a webmaster forum.
    This may not be a BHW topic.
