Advanced Selection Tool

Shutter does provide two different tools to capture a region of your screen. The Simple Selection Tool and the Advanced Selection Tool.
Video (Advanced Selection Tool – zoom window)

There is a dialog that allows you to enter the width, height, X and Y position of the selection manually.

Window Selection

You’ll see a nice animated effect when hovering with your mouse over the windows on your desktop displaying the window title and geometry of the currently selected window.

    Congratulation for your software. It’s really nice.
    I would like to know which is the program do you use to record the screencasts ( I’ve a long time searching one to let me do zoom while I record the screencasts, but I don’t find yet.
    I hope do you can help me =D
    Thanks so much and best regards.

  4. I normaly use byzanz or recordmyDesktop.

    Byzanz is really nice because it is a panel app and records in gif. Sometimes i have some projects which can’t use vids.
