Shutter 0.92 Released with New Bugfixes

Shutter is a feature-rich, open source screenshot program for Linux based operating systems such as Ubuntu. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window. Shutter allows you to capture nearly anything on your screen without loosing control over your screenshots (tabbed interface). Some features includes Capture a Specific Area, Capture your Desktop, Capture a Window, Capture a Menu or Tooltip, Capture a Website. Shutter ships with a great variety of plugins that allow you to add impressive effects to your screenshots.

  • UbuntuOne
