screenshot? GIMP

The GIMP has the ability to take screenshots, if that is what you mean by snapshots.

Thanks.
I didn't know Gimp can take screenshots. But now I can do with it.

I have red hat 8.0 on one of my machines. If I use the default BlueCurve window manager, rather than KDE or Gnome, I can simply hit the PrintScreen key and that pops up a little app called Screenshot.

Isn't the default Desktop manager for RH8 Gnome? I thought Bluecurve was just a theme for gnome or KDE.

Well, maybe so, but I have a choice at the Session selection of KDE, Gnome, WindowMaker, Default, etc. Default, is BlueCurve, or so I thought. And I thought BlueCurve was a sort of cross between KDE and Gnome, or something. But it sure looks like Gnome.

Anyway, I logged in and specifically selected Gnome and the PrintScreen key worked there also as I described.

regards...

edit: I've also used Gimp for screenshots and for shots of specific windows on the desktop.
