Linux has few good screenshot apps and Shutter is one of them. It allows us to capture screenshots of the whole screen, a particular application, a region or any menu. Apart from that, it can also apply some effects and draw shapes on the captured image to create illustrations. The best thing about Shutter is that it allows complete control with GUI without any scary command line controls.
Shutter version 0.86.3 has brought a new feature. From now on, we can synchronize the captured screenshots on our Ubuntu One cloud storage.
Ubuntu One is a storage application and service operated by Canonical Ltd. and currently in public beta. The service enables users to store and sync files in a Canonical Managed Cloud.
The latest feature of publishing at Ubuntu One cloud works only for Ubuntu 10.04 or later. The support can be added by running:
sudo apt-get install libnet-dbus-glib-perl
from the terminal.
Other changes in the recent version of Shutter, include a new icon set and some bug-fixes. Romario, at the release announcement page, has answered some comments. From there, it is evident that the next imminent feature is the ability to capture screenshots of scrolling windows and to capture a screen area repeatedly with a predefined delay. This can make Shutter an excellent tool for creating step-by-step tutorials.
