# Introduction

We've created a screenshots API which helps you to take screenshots from websites without having to use browsers or infrastructure.

  • Requests to Screenshots API start with the following base part: https://api.proxycrawl.com/screenshots
  • All the requests to the Screenshots API require to send the token parameter using your private token ?token=_USER_TOKEN_

# Your first API call

Here is a simple example to get you started with your first screenshot:

curl 'https://api.proxycrawl.com/screenshots?token=_USER_TOKEN_&url=https%3A%2F%2Fapple.com'
