If you have attention to detail, one of the most frustrating things about taking automated website screenshots is emoji support.

Urlbox solved this problem years ago along with dozens of features for taking screenshots at scale.

Rendering emoji at a URL just works with Urlbox.

Lets try rendering all the people emojis at https://emojipedia.org/people/

We've set a few options extra to make this screenshot look great. We automatically click accept on Emojipedia's cookie popup, we reduce the screen size and ensure retina quality.

<img

/>

It results in a screenshot like this:
