"Bog standard screenshot software has been available as
bundled software in both Gnome and KDE desktops for ever.
They’re good at what they do but they are limited to
relatively simple tasks. If you want to do more serious, integrated
stuff then Shutter’s the kiddie. The latest version of
Shutter (0.80) takes the “serious stuff” to the next
level by adding six new features to the Edit tool. Shutter’s
screenshot-taking features alone make it worth installing but the
additions for editing make it the software of choice. This article
describes the latest tools.
"Good software is characterized by many things, but one of the
most important is the willingness and ability of the developers to
listen to user feedback, respond quickly and implement feature
requests. And Shutter’s developers, Mario Kemper and Vadim
Peretokin, are (and I can testify from direct, personal experience)
very responsive, friendly and helpful. If you send them a bug
report or a suggestion for a new feature you will get a response.
And get it, fast. These are the kind of developers you’d want
in a shell hole, under fire."
