Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The greatest screenshotting tool known to Linux users sees a new release today.

Version 0.86.4 (don’t say that with a mouthful) adds many exciting new features. Ready for a rundown?

Capture all workspaces as one image

Does what it says on the tin; whether you have 2 or 20 workspaces Shutter can now take a screenshot of each in succession and present them as one image, like so: –


The ‘hard-shadow’ plugin is now configurable; set your shadows to drop south-west, north-east, dead on centre, etc and a new Autocrop plugin lets you remove empty borders from screenshots taken.

Other bits and bobs filling up the release include the addition of keyboard shortcuts for use with the advanced selection tool and ability to launch the Shutter ‘editing’ programme directly after taking a screenshot.
