  2. Hello,

    Thanks shutter team for the best screen capture tools in Linux.

    I have found so many rich features in shutter so far but one thing I tried to do is applying border on edit panel.

    I have figured an option to apply border while capturing the image but when i crop the image the border also cropped so I need to add border while editing. Is there any way? Or any Plugin for this feature?

    Thanks in advance,

  3. PS. I love Shutter and have been using it for years, this is the first time I have had any issue with it.

  4. Since installing Ubuntu 15.04 Mate Edition Shutter hangs (using 100% CPU on one core) after one screen shot. I am running Shutter version 0.93.1. Any ideas?

  5. I love this tool!

    can you please help me to save file name in a variable?


  7. Hello Shutter Team,
    Shutter is absolutely the best screenshot program in Linux.
    However, I’m visually impaired. When taking a screenshot, the complete screen turns dark.
    Is there a way to keep the screen ‘normal’ when taking a screenshot?

    This problem prevents me from moving from Windows and MWSnap 3 to Linux and Shutter.

    Hope you can help me and many visually impaired.
    With kind regards,

  8. Absolutely the most amazing tool. Using in KDE for computer science class. Great assistant to any documentation project.

  9. Hello, is it possible to force the length and width of the selection box when in the “Advanced selection tool” mode? In photoshop this can be done by holding down shift while you are drawing the selection. Thank you for Shutter!

  10. Forgot to mention… LOVE Shutter. I’ve recommended it to all my friends and coworkers. It’s full-features, quick, and just works! Excellent job.
