HTML file to Image?


I wonder if we have a way to turn simple HTML file into an image.
The first thought is, cffile read the HTML file and then use ImageNew function to turn the content from cffile read into the content of the image. However, it generated an error.
Java Stacktrace
lucee.runtime.exp.ExpressionException: file or directory

Do you have another simple way to accomplish it?


Maybe turn it into a PDF and then convert that?

Thanks for the idea, Mark, googling produced this technique as well but I don’t have any PDF tool that would allow me to save a PDF as an image file. But no biggie, I’ve resolved it with another method.

Lucee can’t do this directly, but you could use wkhtmltoimage as a seperate service.
