GScrot is now Shutter

After some suggestions and careful considerations, we’ve now decided to rename GScrot into Shutter. Along with that decision, we now also have a nicer logo (thanks to Pascal Grochol), and a nicer website!

If you’ve been subscribed to our PPA, then you’ll automatically be notified of an upgrade. Otherwise, you can download an updated version of Shutter here, which will replace GScrot. Instead of GScrot in Applications→Accessories, you’ll now see Shutter 🙂

Thanks to the community at for contributing to the name brainstorming, and especially damis648 for coming up with the name.
