App Day: Shutter

The software I want to show you today is Shutter.  Now, if you did a quick google search for “Linux screenshot application,” I am sure* you will find it.   But, for the uninformed, or those looking for some advice.  Here it is:  Shutter is easily the best screenshot application for Linux right now.  Sure, the included screenshot applications in many distros is OK, but when you want features, you get* features.  Let’s install the application first:

Debian/Ubuntu/Mint :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install shutter


 yum install shutter

Shutter, is an all purpose screenshot application.  It outputs in serveral formats and is quite quick, with adjustable compression levels. This allows shutter to be versitile and quite flexible. There are other options available for keyboard shortcuts,as well as plugins and many upload services.Selection_001
