Project Description


I need someone to design a simple software that works like this:

-- I will load the application with URLs.

-- Application will go to these addresses and take screen shots.

-- Screen shot should be handled by an open source command-line image handler/editor...

I know a good one that does this called [url removed, login to view]

but you may use your own or another source if you're familiar with another one.

-- I want to specify the width/height of the screen shot.

-- I want the resolution (DPI) to be as high as possible (will try different settings).

-- The only real challenge in this project is : I need the application to load images

and also load browser flash plugin, so if the website has a video, it should at least load the video's screen.

So, if the URL is this: [url removed, login to view]

It should display the whole page + the video itself

(not an error saying The Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported

browser is required for video playback)

Try this online tool here: [url removed, login to view]

the shot, will be similar to what the above tool is doing... for the whole page of the addresses I added into your application.

The page will be opened in a browser window (specific height/width) this will be the image's height/width.

-- I don't want to "see" all this... just use command lines if possible?

if not possible (because of the flash thing), then show it in a visible window (I will keep it minimized).

-- That's all, export the screen shots into a folder, in JPG or PNG format.

-- I prefer NOT to use any Internet Explorer browser components... you may use Chrome/Firefox components

So things like: Nodejs - Awesomium , [url removed, login to view] , ChromeDriver etc..

all these are OK, since they are not IE :-)

Note that these are suggestions only, if you have something else that you're more

comfortable working with, then please let me know.

-- You may use any language you like, as long as it's desktop-based.

-- Interface is not very important... I'll be the only user, but I appreciate reasonable-looking interfaces :)

Well, that's all for now... if interested, please leave a comment & we'll discuss this in more details.

Thanks for looking & have a great day :)
