This class can capture Web page as image using ScreenshotLayer API.

It can send a HTTP request to the ScreenshotLayer API to request the capture of an image in PNG, JPG or GIF formats from a given URL.

It can capture an image for the full page or only the visible viewport at a given size.

A given CSS may be injected in the captured page. A custom user agent string may be sent to the page Web server to emulate certain device browsers. The API may delay the capture for a given period of time.

The captured image can be resized to a given width and height. The capture results may be cached for a given period of time.

The class can return the captured image as HTML image tags, save the image to file or serve for display. The API may serve a custom placeholder image while the capture is not fully ready.
