VokoscreenNG is a user friendly screencaster for Linux and Windows. It is a continuation of the now discontinued Vokoscreen project that has been totally rewritten from scratch using Qt and GStreamer.
Spectacle is a simple application for capturing desktop screenshots. It can capture images of the entire desktop, a single monitor, the currently active window, the window currently under the mouse, or a rectangular region of the screen.
This extension is able to capture 100% of both the vertical and horizontal content appearing on any webpage on the Internet. It is very easy to save the captured file onto your computer or print it / or share it to any social network.
This application allows you to capture the entire screen, the active window or a selected region. You can set the delay that elapses before the screenshot is taken and the action that will be done with the screenshot: save it to a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, open it...
Collabshot is a tool that lets you instantly create short URLs for your screen grabs that can be shared with anyone. You don't have to sign up nor sign in – simply download a cross-platform desktop application and take a screenshot by pressing a hotkey.
An open source multi-platform screen capture and recording tool for simple "capture / annotate / share" workflow. Ginj was inspired by Jing (now discontinued), but although there are similarities in the way both tools behave, Ginj is not Jing.
Hotshots is a screenshot tool with some editing features. It is particularly suitable for writing documentation (as used in the following chapters) but you can use it to highlight some details on a map image or what ever you want.Discontinued
