Create an image - advice

I need an application which creates an image, let me explain this in a little more detail.

I have PDA application which captures a signature and sends it back to our server where it is converted to a .gif file.

At current i have a webform which displays some information (payment mandate) and insert the .gif file at the correct location on the form and voila that works well.

I now need to replicate this form but need to save the whole thing as another picture, it's like i need to take a snapshot of the webpage and save that as an image.

What method should i use to do this?

Thanks

You mean the Web Page which is being browsed by User in a browser should be saved as a snapshot. And where do you wish to do that, on client machine / server ?

That's just an example of what the image i'm saving should look like.

I'm not after an application which will take a snapshot of a webpage i need to write something which will take a .gif and place it on a form which looks like the web page and then saves the whole thing as a single image so i can then use that image else where.

Does that make sense?
Yes makes sense, but i have no idea about how to do this. Sorry pal. May be some other expert can guide you here.

Yeah i'm struggling a bit with this.  What a ridiculous requirement anyway :)

Thanks though.
Theoretically, since the the rest of the web page (besides the signature) is going to be the same every time minus a few individual filled out forms, couldn't you have a default blank image on your server and then dynamically write in text into each of the "form fields" and save it as a new image?
