I'm running Mint 11, and the 'take screenshot' app works great for most of the captures I want - I select an area of the screen I want and take a shot. Ok, fine with that, however I've been trying to find a screenshot app where I can do something a bit different. I want to be able to select an area of the screen and have it take a shot every second for a period of 7-8 seconds ( without the 'save' box popping up during that time). I don't know if such a thing exists, so I thought I'd ask. The reason I want to do screenshots instead of video is to make some gifs.

The reason for the 7-8 second time frame is that I watch a live Eagle nest cam, and when the bird first sits on the eggs it does a 'shimmy' for that long, and there is just no time to do seperate shots. any ideas on this?

Thanks,

Keith

I didn't see the option to do what I want to do in Shutter, I'm thinking that option may not exist. I'm still looking at various ones ( screenshot apps ) to see if I can find anything.
