When I press Prnt Scrn in Xubuntu, xfce4-screenshooter starts.

I also installed shutter which has many more options to customize and to compress the screenshot into a smaller, better emailable size (see how do I get maximal compressed screenshots?)

Is it possible to modify the Prnt Scrn function so that shutter takes the screenshot instead of xfce4-screenshooter?

You can change the shortcut in Keyboard settings.

Remove the xfce4-screenshooter ones and create your shutter ones.

You can also replace the default screenshoter gnome-screenshot in Ubuntu 14.04 Unity with shutter in the unity-control-center:

use shutter -s to select an area and shutter -f for a full screenshot
