KSnapshot; SnagIt for Ubuntu Linux

Anda tentu tahu software SangIt buatan TechSmith Corporation?, yup… SnagIt adalah software screen capture powerfull seharga $49.95 dengan feature-feature berikut:

Capture a window
Get just the window, not the stuff behind or around it.

Capture a region
Draw a box on the screen and capture whatever is inside.

Capture a tall window
Can’t fit it on the screen? SnagIt auto-scrolls the window and grabs it all!

Bagi pengguna Ubuntu seperti saya tentunya menginginkan software serupa dengan feature yang seperti SnagIt, yup… kita tidak perlu khawatir karena ada software serupa di Ubuntu Linux yang feature dan kegunaannya menyerupai SnagIt, bedanya software ini free 100% alias kita tidak usah membayar seharga $49.95 layaknya jika kita ingin menggunakan SnagIt.

KSnapshot adalah nama software tersebut, seperti ditulis dalam Official Web nya, serta dalam Wiki nya :

KSnapshot is a simple applet for taking screenshots. It is capable of capturing images of either the whole desktop, or just a single window. The images can then be saved, or passed to another application using drag and drop.

KSnapshot is a screenshot application for the KDE desktop environment that was created by Richard J. Moore, Matthias Ettrich and Aaron J. Seigo in Qt and C++.

KSnapshot allows users to use hotkeys to take a screenshot of the entire screen, a selected portion, one window or just one part of a window. Users then have the choice to save the screenshot in a variety of formats, copy it to the clipboard or directly open it with any program that is associated with image files.

An equivalent application for the GNOME desktop environment is gnome-screenshot.

Setelah mencoba dan menggunakan software ini, dengan mempertimbangkan antara software free dan berbayar, maka saya mengambil kesimpulan bahwa KSnapshot bisa disejajarkan dengan SnagIt.

Berikut beberapa screenshoot dari software KSnapshot tersebut.
