View Full Version : Get Images from URL

06-18-2009, 07:00 PM
Hi all,

I'm interested in creating a social bookmarking site similar to delicious, or digg. However I'm struggling with the conceptualization. I would like for the site to generate a screen shot of the website a user has bookmarked without them actually having to upload an image! I'm wondering if this is at all possible without me storing thousand of images on my database.

I searched online and I came across a few alternatives. I was primarily interested in this site, Snapcasa. The site allows you to enter a url and the gets the screen shot based on that url. Any way to incorporate this site into my project?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, or if you can point me to some examples of this that would be great also!

Regards, Zeal
