How to Use

The screenshot tab brick outputs the contents of the tab as an image in a base64 encoded data URL (in the variable by default). This can be useful for sending the image to APIs, or putting that image in HTML or Markdown in a panel or sidebar. In other cases, it’s useful to pair this with the Parse Data URL brick to get just the data from the base64 encoded data URL.
