I am using AbotX to crawl and i would like to save the screenshots. As PhantomJS is used in ABotx to render the page, is it not possible to retrieve teh rendered page in a png file?

Yes, for those with access to the source code you could simply extend the PhantomJsRenderer.cs impl (which implements IJavascriptRenderer). That class interacts directly with phantomjs can could be modified to do screenshots.

Hope that helps

Replied to the cookie issue thread instead of here.

Indeed, with the Ultimate version, i can add the screenshot in the PhantomJSrenderer easily.
The only problem that remains is the "cooky request on each page". Can that be avoided somehow?
