Is there any tool which can make screenshots and then do a simple annotation/editing?
 
Hi All,

recently I found a great firefox addon fireshot: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5648

it's really useful as it can both make a screenshot and add some annotations in the picture.

But it doesn't support linux!!

Do we have other alternatives for such a smart tool? it should support annotation. it's very important function.

thanks in advance!

Lots of applications exist for screenshots. Imagemagick's import, KDE's ksnapshot, etc.
For annotations, try some Imagemagick magic.

I like xsnap.

Another option is gimp. It can acquire a screenshot of the whole screen or a single window. Then you can edit the image at your pleasure.

Gimp is a little too large, I think. btw, I don't know how to draw a box in gimp except select area first and then make strokes. too complex in terms of annotation tool.

I need a light-weight application.

Let me try xsnap first, and I'll come back to report it.

Thanks for your replies.

I agree with you and that's why I use xsnap, it's lightweight and do exactly what I (and you) need.

I have xsnap installed, however, it seems it has problems in my computer. when running xsnao, it reported:
Code:

xsnap error : impossible to load font -bitstream-bitstream vera sans-medium-r-normal-*-*-100-*-*-p-*-iso8859-*
How to fix this problem?

any ideas are really appreciated, thanks.

it seems you're lacking some fonts. Just install them.
