NAME

Shutter - Feature-rich Screenshot Tool

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

shutter [options]

COPYRIGHT

Shutter is Copyright (C) by Mario Kemper and Shutter Team

DESCRIPTION

Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website - apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.

OPTIONS

Example 1 shutter -a -p=myprofile --min_at_startup
Example 2 shutter -s=100,100,300,300 -e
Example 3 shutter --window=.*firefox.*
Example 4 shutter --web=http://shutter-project.org/ -e

    CAPTURE MODE OPTIONS

-s, --select=[X,Y,WIDTH,HEIGHT] Capture an area of the screen. Providing X,Y,WIDTH,HEIGHT is optional.
-f, --full Capture the entire screen.
-w, --window=[NAME_PATTERN] Select a window to capture. Providing a NAME_PATTERN (Perl-style regex) ist optional.
-a, --active Capture the current active window.
--section Capture a section. You will be able to select any child window by moving the mouse over it.
-m, --menu Capture a menu.
-t, --tooltip Capture a tooltip.
--web=[URL] Capture a webpage. Providing an URL ist optional.
-r, --redo Redo last screenshot.

    SETTINGS OPTIONS

-p, --profile=NAME Load a specific profile on startup.
-o, --output=FILENAME Specify a filename to save the screenshot to (overwrites any profile-related setting).

Supported image formats: You can save to any popular image format (e.g. jpeg, png, gif, bmp). Additionally it is possible to save to pdf, ps or svg.

Please note: There are several wildcards available, like



 %Y = year
 %m = month
 %d = day
 %T = time
 $w = width
 $h = height
 $name = multi-purpose (e.g. window title)
 $nb_name = like $name but without blanks in resulting strings
 $profile = name of current profile
 $R = random char (e.g. $RRRR = ag4r)
 %NN = counter



The string is interpretted by strftime. See man strftime for more examples.

As an example: shutter -f -e -o ’./%y-%m-%d_$w_$h.png’ would create a file named ’11-10-28_1280_800.png’ in the current directory.

-d, --delay=SECONDS Wait n seconds before taking a screenshot.

-C, --remove_cursor Remove cursor when taking a screenshot.

--clear_cache Clears cache, e.g. installed plugins, at startup.
--min_at_startup Starts Shutter minimized to tray.
