Yes, you can just use PhantomJS or any other open source solution for taking screenshots. They will work ok for some sites, but they use really old browser versions and so the accuracy of their screenshots may not be up to scratch, and you can trust us, we've been there..

Any site that employs 'modern' web technologies such as webfonts, svg, canvas, HTML5 video backgrounds, flexbox etc will probably give you inconsistent results. Also, depending on how many screenshots you want to take you might find that scaling one of these open source projects becomes a project in itself.

So just use Urlbox.io instead, we've already gone through all the hard work in setting up a highly accurate, scalable rendering grid.

We use Amazon S3 to store screenshot images. If you're on the startup plan or above you can choose to save screenshots to your own bucket too.
