Snagit is a great piece of screen capture software that lets you capture sections of a screen, entire webpages or your full screen view. One of the best bits is being able to add little speech bubbles like this image here. If you’re running Ubuntu though, there’s no such software.
How to capture a screenshot or region of a screen in Ubuntu
Don’t panic, taking a screenshot in Ubuntu is easy with Gimp. You can even set a delay on the screen capture if, for example you need time to clear your screen or go into Compiz cube mode. Here’s what to do:
Open Gimp and go to File>Aquire>Screenshot
From this screen you can take a screenshot, capture a region or capture a selected window. What’s really useful is the ability to set a delay in seconds, so you have time to go and set up your perfect screen grab! :-)
