"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."
