API

Screenshot delay GET http://api.screenshots.io/?url=www.google.com&delay=1000

Return a 1024x600 PNG screenshot of the www.google.com homepage 1 second after it's loaded

Why free?

Because charging to generate png's for url's is not what I want to do.

I'll try to maintain this the best I can, and donations will help.

If I ever decide to take down the project, there will be a 2 month notice before the website goes down.

Plenty of enough time for you to change providers.

Currently the service is being hosted on Amazon AWS. Github pages hosts this page.
