Take website screenshot using ASP.NET

The code shown below is based on an article at plentyofcode.com (sorry the site now appears to be offline May 2012) but I have translated it from VB.NET to C# and will work in .NET so theoretically for any Windows or ASP.NET web project.
using System; using System.Drawing; using System.Drawing.Imaging; using System.Windows.Forms; using System.Diagnostics; namespace WebsiteScreenshot { public class GetImage { private int s_Height; private int s_Width; private int f_Height; private int f_Width; private string myURL; public int ScreenHeight { get { return s_Height; } set { s_Height = value; } } public int ScreenWidth { get { return s_Width; } set { s_Width = value; } } public int ImageWidth { get { return f_Width; } set { f_Width = value; } } public int ImageHeight { get { return f_Height; } set { f_Height = value; } } public string Website …

Class provided by C Sharp Help:
using System.IO.Compression;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
public static string Compress(string text)
{
    byte[] buffer = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(text);
    MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
    using (GZipStream zip = new GZipStream(ms, CompressionMode.Compress, true))����…
