I actually asked this question a week or so ago (in a different form). 
I got many helpful answers, but none that were headless.  It was mostly 
software that takes screen captures with basic editing functionality, 
which should speed up the process a bit... but it only takes me a few 
second to do using the windows built in screen capture and a photoshop 
action, so it wasn't quite what I needed.  I'm did get a suggestion 
elsewhere to run mozilla and screen capturing software in linux, which 
is my big plans for this weekend.  I'll let you know how it goes.
