To create screenshots, sign up for an account and go to the “customize my link!“ section. Then input the URL, set the size of the screenshot and paste the generated code to your website. ShrinkTheWeb can also support bulk processing and multiple image sizes.

ShrinkTheWeb has free and paid account options available. The free Basic account allows you to submit 5000 new screenshot requests for websites that ShrinkTheWeb has not yet captured, and 250,000 fetches of previously captured sites. Power users and organizations can upgrade to PRO account with features such as more request allowance, specific page captures, full-length captures, custom-sized captures, refresh-on-demand, and many more.

ShrinktheWeb is the ultimate handy tool for bloggers and content managers who need screenshots quickly. In fact, we at MakeUseOf use this service a lot! Just check out our daily post of Cool Websites and Tools just like this for an example of how we use it.
