The method used in this stack to create optimized images uses export 
snapshot command... that exports a snapshot of the screen from the rect 
of an image.
Other windows may overlap the image and then appear on the snapshot :-(
That's a correct behaviour: see export snapshot command in the docs.
Sure you can watch easily for other rev windows overlapping the image 
and smoothly move them first.
For desktop and other apps windows, I think using shell commands would 
be doable to mask them first and show them again when the process is 
finished but I don't know which ones.
I'm sure there are revers on this list who will tell us the trick :-)

Bets regards,

Eric Chatonet.
