Screenshot
Looking for images rather than HTML code? Simply ask WebScrapingAPI for a screenshot.
If you are interested in getting a screenshot of the webpage you're scraping, all you need to do is pass the screenshot=1 parameter to the request. By enabling this parameter, the result will return a JSON object containing the base64 encrypted image.
Your full GET request should then be sent to the following address:
https://api.webscrapingapi.com/v1?api_key=<YOUR_API_KEY>&url=<TARGETED_URL>&screenshot=1
This parameter is only available with JavaScript Rendering turned on (render_js=1)
