Converting HTML to images


I've spent a lot of time googling on this one, but could not really find anything that would convert HTML to images. Does anyone know if there are some command line tools that can do this? I need to convert simple HTML documents to images to be attached to Powerpoint presentations. Could firefox gecko be tapped into to do this without a GUI?

Thanks for you input!

This http://groups.google.com/group/html-...a7a03c991bacf1 may help you. I've been in your shoes before, and have often been forced to browse the page(s), and capture screen-shots with the GIMP, or other such tool.

html2jpg ? See http://freshmeat.net/projects/html2jpg/

Or maybe khtml2png See http://khtml2png.sourceforge.net/ ?

But TB0ne's gimp & screenshot capture is quick & easy.

Thanks for the KHTML link, that is exactly what I am looking for! Is based on the same code used in the Konquer / Safari browsers? If so it should be able to render / convert almost any page out there. I will give this a shot!

Thanks again!
