I have written an application that acts as a webpage. it allows the user to build and customize a banner using text and sprites. I would like it to be able to save a screenshot on the recipt page where I am already printing the recipt on the users pc. I want to also save the screenshot.

I have read in various forums that it could probably be dont through the swf calling a php script that does the job. But I can't find out how?

    Here you can find source, examples, tutorials and walkthrough about those libraries.. (you have to pass the php script everything about your clip, lines, shapes, coordinates, colors, strokes, etc..)
