Can STW show PDF docs?

Update (02/07/2013): PDF Screenshot Captures are now supported.

I have a WordPress blog for a small club, but another member of the club also generates interesting content in a regular PDF newsletter (usually only 1 page).

I'd like to post the PDF as an image in a WordPress post with a link to the full PDF. Normally, this takes time to clip the PDF, save as JPG, then upload two files and create the post with links, etc etc ...

It seems to me it would be easier if I could just upload the PDF, get STW to capture the "web page image" and display it inside a post, with a quick link. Time cut in half (or perhaps even more) ....

Is this possible? under Pro?

Due to the overhead required by PDFs, we do not currently support a feature like this. Also, it would not be cost-effective for us to support this feature for only $24.95 per month.

If we get a lot of requests or find people willing to pay a good bit more for this feature, we would consider implementing it.

Thank you for considering ShrinkTheWeb.

Best regards,

Brandon

Update: We are working on this and hope to be able to support PDF screenshots soon. We'll be sure to keep you posted.

PDF support is still not going to be released, as it was not possible to include support in the latest round of capture generator upgrades.

Hopefully we will be able to include PDF support at some point in 2013.
