Just curious, it seems similar all of them and they are a lot better than anything I have. Is this a commercial product?

 

As a side note just how many sub menus can you open and captuer with that thing?

I just use the default screen capture program in Ubuntu. Ctrl-PrtScn I believe is the command, or maybe it's Alt-PrtScn. One of those...

 

What do you mean by how many sub menus can you capture?

By now you should know that I use Shutter.  I specifically chose Shutter because I can edit, add rectangles, arrows, etc. and upload to an image hosting site all from the same program.  To capture sub menus, just use the time delay under Edit-->Preferences-->Capture after a delay of x seconds.  In fact, you can create and save several "profiles" each with different settings for specific purposes, e.g. one might have a time delay.  Thereafter, you can select or switch to the profile you need quickly from Edit-->Quick profile select.

Thank you apparently I just need to practice more, I can get only 2 windows/sub menu to capture at oe time. Sometimes you guys have 5 or more open. lol

 

I like shutter but I really need more practice. I actually have a lot of screen shots I have never posted.  Useually the issue I was going to post about resolved itself or I was given a soloution.  Kind of pointless then.

Ah I see what you are saying... I just capture the whole screen. So whatever I have on the screen it captures.

I used the inbuilt one for a long time dannyboy, in fact until just the last week lol.  I knew Shutter was good as Nick was using it, along with others.  But the inbuilt one will do a lot if you play around with it.  The delay really helps, and as suggested Full Screen is the easy way.  It took me a while to execute getting certain windows captured while they were open, but that is the fun of it...well usually lol.  Glad you are trying this out because it will help you get answers easier.

I also use the inbuilt, most inbuilt linux screenshot tools do the job very well.

Though shutter is nice if want editing I usually use the gimp, shutter is better for tutorials not the occasional screenshot
