I have been using Shutter a lot recently. It is a great tool for sending screenshots — a picture is worth a thousand words!
This post is a little old, but it had a lot of great information in it. After seeing it and looking on the Shutter website, I thought I should write another post on Shutter.
I just checked, and I have version 0.85.1 installed. I just have the version installed from the 10.04 repository. On 9/12/2010, they released version 0.86.4 according to this post.
So, I decided to try to upgrade. The website has a nice instruction page to show you how.
Basically, I just ran the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa sudo apt-get update
Then, update manager popped up and offered to update Shutter.
Here are the new features or changes that this gives me:
The coolest part is that I learned that I can drag a screenshot from shutter and drop it into GMail. Before, I would have to copy the filename, and then I would have to insert an image in GMail, browse, and paste the path in the browse dialog.
