Capture snapshots of any website using Cloudinarys URL2PNG add-on.


Add link to the site you'd like to create a snapshot of, by using the [cloud2png] shortcode, eg:

[cloud2png url=""]

Customize the snapshots

Using the Cloud2PNG Customizer you can change the size and border of the snapshots.

Shortcode parameters

You can override the Cloud2PNG Customizer using the shortcode parameters, they are (with defaults):

  • url=home_url( '/' )
  • width=430
  • height=225
  • border_width=0
  • border_radius=0
  • border_color=#000000
[cloud2png url="" width="300" height="400" border_width="5"]

Adding Cloud2PNG to a theme

Using do_shortcode(), you can add Cloud2PNG to a theme:

echo do_shortcode( 'url="" width="300" height="400" border_width="5' );

or using the shortcode_atts_{$shortcode} filter:

add_filter ('shortcode_atts_cloud2png', 'add_url', 10, 3);
function add_url ($out, $pairs, $atts ) {
    $out['url'] = '';
    return $out;

I code for fun, and I code to learn. I've tried to do this plugin using OOP at my best effort. There will be couplings that could be looser and not everything is DRY. I will update the plugin as I learn more and I will fix issues that are reported.

I'm following the WordPress Coding Standards with one exception, I'm using the PSR-4 autoloader and I've disabled the following rules:

<rule ref="WordPress-Core">
	<exclude name="Generic.Files.LowercasedFilename" />
	<exclude name="WordPress.Files.FileName" />
	<exclude name="WordPress.Files.FileName.UnderscoresNotAllowed" />
