What I need done is have a program either via desktop application or via a web server to be able to load a list of websites and mass-create a thumbnail for the websites, their websites that are not hosted on my server.
The list will be in the following format
Google, [url removed, login to view]
Yahoo, [url removed, login to view]
MyWebsite, [url removed, login to view]
Website5, [url removed, login to view]
It must NOT error out with a "$" symbol for the first character in the name.
If the program is web server based, it must create and store them on the server in a folder so I can just download the folder.
If being run on a web server, it must not have to run "on" the server via remote desktop. It must be able to be run on a shared web server hosting package.
If it's a desktop application it must save the files locally.
It is preferred to save the images/thumbnails in PNG format.
The thumbnail must ONLY be the website, and NOTHING MORE.
