When taking screenshots, it's important that the browser is big enough to show all of the content in the DOM that we want to screenshot. We can do this by setting the viewport.

Chris Biscardi: [00:00] Our serverless function image generation is working, but you'll see that the dimensions that are getting returned from a page that a value will call are smaller than the actual image. This is because we haven't set the viewport yet.

[00:10] Right before we set content, we can set the ViewportSize to whatever we want. In our case, we'll set it for the same dimensions that we used in figma, a new CodeSandbox.

[00:19] Now we see our image, which I'll save to my desktop.
