Pressing [Print Screen] key will create a png image of the desktop screen. (uses scrot)
Or use scrot from the command line or in a script.
From a script you could load the browser in full screen or kiosk mode then take a screen capture after a time delay etc.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

OP specified console, so I assume not running desktop.

There is an option in Firefox that may work.

Code: Select all

firefox --screenshot $URL
is supposed to save a screenshot of the $URL page in the current directory. I don't know if it works on a system without desktop.

What do they show - it may be easier to fix these than find another solution...

Mods must have had a tidy - it was fine when posted :lol:

How did you install these - it reads like you have a total mix of x86, ARM and iOS install files?

What version of the operating system are you using?

Well I found solution it is Cutycapt
OS ->Raspberry Pi newest(on ) 13/06/2018 version ( Raspbian v->July 2019)
Raspberry PI-> Raspberry Pi Model B V1.1
Installation guide :
1)
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
2)
$ sudo apt-get install cutycapt
3)
????
4)
PROFIT!

How to use it:
CutyCapt support formats ->SVG, PDF, PS, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, GIF btw have support of javascript and you can convert HTML files(it can be file in your Pi) to image. More info-> $cutycapt --help

type this in console for test:
$ cutycapt --url=http://www.google.com --out=google.png
AWARE!
output image will be placed in working directory and THE MOST important CutyCapt by some mean "squeezes" output image
better use like that (output image will be 1920x1080)
$ cutycapt --url=http://www.google.com --out=google.png --min-width=1920 --min-height=1080
