I've been looking for a program that will take full screen shots of web pages even when the web page is larger than the window size on my physical screen, requiring scrolling. This morning I found such a program in Petr Šmejkal's Win32::CaptureIE when it was mentioned by Displeaser on DevShed Forums in the "Screenshot of webpage" thread. It uses ImageMagick for image manipulation.Read more...
- Chris Laco reported Apache2/mod_perl2 would core dump with ImageMagick (on FreeBSD). He moved to FastCGI+ImageMagick first and is now using FastCGI+Imager. ImageMagick has been reported to work with Mason+Apache1.x+mod_perl1.3.
- Andreas Marienborg reported on #catalyst IRC that Imager doesn't work with Catalyst+PAR and has moved to GD.
- Someone on #rubyonrails IRC mentioned having problems with RMagick and was looking to migrate to ruby-gd
Wanting the best of all worlds, I moved to GD which also has a smaller memory footprint than ImageMagick. I ended up writing my own wrapper for Lincoln Stein's GD module using the Image::Magick API (drop-in replacement for a very limited set of functionality) though something like Image::Thumbnail, which provides a uniform interface to GD, ImageMagick and Imager, is probably better for general use.
Thanks to Chris and Andreas for their reporting issues. Hopefully I'll be all set with GD.
