ColdFusion Create An Image From An HTML Page

Can you take an HTML page and create a GIF/PNG/JPEG image from it? I know about iText for PDF (and I'm sure it does images), but seems a bit of overkill.

What I specifically want is to send a function an HTML page and have it spit back a flat image of that page.
