I often find myself coming to terms with the screenshot, especially when I write a tutorial, or when I write about a new program the little known.
Until some time ago I used the internal utilities Gimp (“File” – “Create” – “Screenshot“), whose options allow you to choose to “photograph” whole screen, or window with the senza decorations, or to set a delay in the event that we “photograph” of menu in sistema.
Other tools without great pretensions instead play the simple job of taking a screen of the entire screen visible. No option is not configurable if the course to save the screenshot. This is the case of “gnome-screenshot“.
Lately, instead, I found myself looking for a program that would allow me the precise selection of the image within the screen, perhaps with a magnifying glass integrated and found Shutter.
Shutter is an application open source very light (1.4 MB) written entirely in perl, which depends in whole. Below the main screen with its most important functions.
Among other functions also allows Shutter select a portion of the screen in a precise manner with the “magnifying glass“. A nice advantage when it comes to tutorials.
