Font rendering improvements

October 2, 2020

We released a patch update to the HTML/CSS to Image Ruby Client. It fixes an issue with addressable not being loaded.

Font rendering improvements

September 30, 2020

We have released a large update to the fonts available to the API. Previously, we were missing some character sets and some images would show an empty square instead of the correct character. Our goal is to be able to perfectly render text from any language.

If you notice any more missing characters, please send us the image URL so that we can investigate it.

Various performance improvements released

September 10, 2020

We’ve been working on further improving the performance of the API. Initial image renders are now ~30% faster. We have also improved caching of images. When cached, you can expect an average of 30-50ms when downloading an image.

Zapier plugin released from beta!

August 31, 2020

The HTML/CSS to Image Zapier integration has graduated from beta. Zapier wrote up a nice blog post about the integration. It’s become very popular quickly and we’ve seen many inventive ways people are improving their businesses through automated image generation.

New Live Editor

August 16, 2020

We’ve rebuilt the live demo. Now you can preview your HTML/CSS as you edit it. Then click the image button to see it converted into an image. This makes it much easier to prototype your images inside a browser.

Ruby Client released

August 7, 2020

We have released the first version of our new ruby client. This allows for easier integration with the API using Ruby.

Integromat updates

August 3, 2020

We’ve added additional parameters to the Integromat integration. You can now use selector, ms_delay and device_scale.

Template API

July 27, 2020

The Template API is now available. With templates, you can create re-usable HTML that contains variables. These variables can be replaced when creating an image, making for even simpler image generation.

Render when ready

July 26, 2020

We have added the render_when_ready parameter to image creation. This gives you control over when the image is rendered.

By setting render_when_ready to true, we will wait to generate the image until your HTML calls the ScreenshotReady() function in JavaScript.

This is useful for images that have complex JS and you need control over when it’s ready to have an image created.

New Zapier templates

July 22, 2020

We have added additional Zapier templates to the integration. You can see them here: HTML/CSS to Image Templates.

Introducing the US-EAST region

July 7, 2020

We have enabled our US-EAST region. Your API requests will now be automatically routed to either US-WEST or US-EAST based on where you ae located. This will improve latency for requests as well as reliability of the API. We will automatically fail over to the other region is one is unhealthy.

We plan to introduce an EU region in the future.

Brand new docs site

July 5, 2020

We’ve released a new version of our documentation website. It’s now simpler, faster & we’ve improved the organization of all the content. Please send us any feedback.

URL to Image performance improvements

July 17, 2020

We have been working on performance improvements to URL to Image. We’ve improved reliability when screenshotting webpages with large amounts of network requests and JavaScript.

URL to Image

March 27, 2020

We’ve added the ability to create images from URL’s. We’re calling this URL to Image. Learn more.

ms_delay parameter

February 12, 2020

We have added the ms_delay parameter. Allowing you to specify how long you want the rendered to wait before generating the image. Useful for HTML with many assets or JavaScript that needs extra time to load.

Deleting images

December 12, 2019

We have added the Delete endpoint. You can now delete an image and it will be completely removed from our servers. Requests to the image URL will return 410.

Integromat integration

November 29, 2019

Our Integromat integration is now available. You can use the integration to connect HTML/CSS to Image with the thousands of integrations available on Integromat.
