Screencapture made easy with GScrot

GScrot  is a GTK+ 2.0 screenshot application written in perl. GScrot covers all features of common command line tools like scrot or import and adds reasonable new features combined with a comfortable GUI using the GTK+ 2.0 framework.

 * take a screenshot of your complete desktop, a rectangular area or capture a website
 * take screenshot directly or with a specified delay time
 * save the screenshots to a specified directory and name them in a convenient way (using special wild-cards)
 * GScrot is fully integrated into the Gnome Desktop (TrayIcon etc.)
 * generate thumbnails directly when you are taking a screenshot and set a size level in %
 * GScrot session collection
    – keep track of all screenshots during session
    – copy screeners to clipboard
    – print screenshots
    – delete screenshots
    – rename your file
* upload your files directly to Image-Hosters, retrieve all the needed links and share them with others
edit your screenshots directly using the embedded drawing tool

Ultimately an application that meets all requirement and easy to use
