in reply to Turning HTML into an Image

Since HTML is a formatting language, not a layout language, you won't get perfect results.

For basics, though, I'd recommend Image::Magick. It requires installation of ImageMagick (see, ghostscript, and a whole bunch of other subsidiary programs, but you can transform HTML into pretty much any kind of image you want. Plus, you'll find it handy in resizing those images.

You might also want to check out HTML::FormatPS.

    Yeah...I have ImageMagick but can't find anything in the docs with what I want to do...If you have a quick sample, I'd really appreciate it!


    PS. Did find an external program that will turn HTML to PDF (close but not what I want -- although maybe I can go HTML --> PDF --> JPG -- but I'd rather fly direct than have lay overs):
