You can get back a screenshot of the webpage you want to scrape by using the screenshot=True parameter.

You can find below how to do it:

Curl

curl "https://app.scrapingbee.com/api/v1/?api_key=YOUR-API-KEY&url=YOUR-URL&screenshot=True" > ./screenshot.png

Python
# Install the Python ScrapingBee library:
# pip install scrapingbee

client = ScrapingBeeClient(api_key='YOUR-API-KEY')

response = client.get(
'YOUR-URL',
params={
'screenshot': True,
}
)

if response.ok:
with open("./screenshot.png", "wb") as f:
f.write(response.content)


Node

// npm install scrapingbee
const fs = require('fs');
const scrapingbee = require('scrapingbee');

async function screenshot(url, path) {
var client = new scrapingbee.ScrapingBeeClient('YOUR-API-KEY');
var response = await client.get({
url: url,
params: {
screenshot: true, // Take a screenshot
screenshot_full_page: true, // Specify that we need the full height
window_width: 375, // Specify a mobile width in pixel
}
});

fs.writeFileSync(path, response.data);
}

screenshot('YOUR-URL', './screenshot.png').catch((e) =>
console.log('A problem occurs : ' + e.message)
);
