KSnapshot is a screenshot application for the KDE desktop environment developed by Richard J. Moore, Matthias Ettrich and Aaron J. Seigo.[1] The screenshots taken by KSnapshot are also called snapshots, which explains its name. It is written in Qt and C++. KSnapshot allows users to use hotkeys[2] to take a screenshot.

In December 2015, KSnapshot has been replaced by Spectacle.[3]

Features

KSnapshot has the following features:[1]

Ksnapshot also had a direct-to-print button but it was removed in version KDE 3.5.

Spectacle

Spectacle
Spectacle

Spectacle replaced KSnapshot with the release of KDE Applications 15.12 in December 2015.

In addition to what one could do with KSnapshot, Spectacle can take composite screenshots of pop-up menus along with their parent windows. Other feature is the ability to take screenshots without explicitly starting Spectacle by using the keyboard shortcuts ⇧ Shift+PrintScreen and Meta+PrintScreen respectively. Spectacle was optimized to start fast to minimize the time lag between starting the application and capturing the image.
