"Selection: When you take a screenshot of only a section of your screen the screen will dim and an instructional window will appear telling you the steps you need to perform.

"Full Screen: The full screen screenshot will not include Shutter in the picture.

"Window: A hand cursor will appear for you to click on the window you want to take the screenshot of. For the most part Shutter works exactly as you would expect. There are some features that you might not be aware of. For example, Shutter has a set of plugins to take advantage of. To use the plugins click on the Screenshot menu and select the Execute a Plugin entry. This will open a new window allowing you to select a plugin to use. Say, for example, you wanted to add a watermark to your screenshot. You can do this by first taking the screenshot, and then opening the Plugins window and selecting the Watermark plugin. You can then be specific about what you want your watermark to say, where you want it, and what font size you want to use."
