Screencasts

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.

    Hi Bernd,
    this will be fixed in a new version during the next days. Stay tuned…

  2. Hi,
    really a great tool. Sadly the puzzle-plugin doesn’t work …

    We’ll keep that in mind when creating new screencasts. The one above is pretty out-of-date.
    Maybe someone has time to create new screencasts? Fell free to contribute…

  4. Hi friends,
    consider using .ogv video instead of flash or at least add download link to .flv video screencast, please.

    Thanks.

    NiteOwl :

    By what I can tell, Shutter does not see content in an iframe. This ability is vital to make the utility complete when capturing web pages by URL.

    Yes, you are right. Shutter is using gnome-web-photo to capture web pages. I’ll file a bug for this in the upstream bugtracker. Thanks.

    Awesome, wonderfull 😉
    This is a very lovely and usable piece of software. Thank you…
    It would be a killer-feature, if in the edit-dialog coult be load other pictures and if the edit-part could started as an standalone-app. That would mean, thats an easy, lightwight picture-tool would be available in conjunction with a distinguished snap-shoot-tool. And that all for the lovely gnome-desktop…

    Thanks at all – and all the best furthremore, good ideas in programming 😉

    • The editor can already load other pictures, try pressing the down arrow by ‘Insert image:’ and select ‘from filesystem’.

      I don’t agree with the editor being stand-alone – it wouldn’t make sense as it was designed specifically for screenshot editing and thus integration with a screenshot app is essential.

    Thanks!
    I’ve used recordmydesktop to do this screencast.

  9. Great screenshot app, so what screencast app are you using?
