What for an incredible good program. I would have never thought, how phantastic it could be to make screenshots. Really, I am not joking. Great, Greta, Shutter!

Love Shutter. I've set up keyboard shortcut to take snapshot of a region ("shutter -s -e"), helps me all the time for taking screenshots and integrating them into note taking apps like Joplin or documents with LibreOffice.

I have been using Shutter for quite a few years. I love it because it is easy to make simple modifications such as adding an arrow with free text, resizing an image (plugin), adding auto-incremented numbers, etc. There are many sophisticated tools to do much more but the difference is really the ease of use to do the simple things!

Would love to see more options added as in FastStone (FS) Capture (WIN 10); 'capture scrolling window', add more fonts, and add in font preview numbers to indicate what numbers look like especially zero (0).

I use Shutter constantly. It is my go-to tool for screen specifc grabs and editing or blurring content before saving, using or sending an image forward. For example, it made building a 'how to' document easy and fast. I am glad to see it back into the repository.

Icon often appears as a blank space when minimized to the system tray... Otherwise it's a great app!

Very nice screenshot application. Currently the edit option is not working for me. I am using flameshot instead

I've tried the majority of SS programs and shutter is the most feature rich. Highly recommended! Be nice to allocate keybindings though otherwise it would have been a 5 star review baby.

Binding to a keystroke using --active parameter to a key results in "No window with name pattern 'shutter' detected" after one run. Everything else works ok.

It's not Skitch, but it's pretty cool. To edit you need to install additional stuff, but that's pretty easy. I use it several times per month and it hasn't busted anything. :) I decided to write this review to encourage development and help others find a good solution. Thanks. :)

Excelente para efetuar os recortes do ecrâ. Não a troco pela pré-instalada.

Really enjoy using the app. The file naming scheme is the best I've seen.
