My workflow:

  1. I make a screenshot of an area via standard shortcut Shift+PrtScr.
  2. After I select the area, first screenshot is made and "gnome-screenshot" dialog window is shown.
  3. While this dialog is opened, you can still see the area you have selected highlighted / shadowed. (When you close this dialog , highlighting disappear.)

I wish I can say to Ubuntu:

Lets make screenshot of this the area again. I don't want to redefine area. I only want another screenshot of the same area.

Advantages:

  • Same size of screenshots.
  • Quicker workflow.

Am I missing something or is this feature missing?

  • Thank you @dk-bose. This feature is (only) one feature which I'm missing in GNOME Screenshot so It will be really nice to that some developers will added it in there. In the mean time I'm going to try the Shutter, how muru recommended it lower in his answer. – Matěj Kříž Apr 13 '17 at 12:39
  • I miss ksnapshot, it used to do this – Yuval Harpaz May 31 '20 at 21:37

You're missing Shutter. GNOME Screenshot is an okay tool, it covers the basics and is good enough for a default.

Shutter has a lot more functionality, but it also depends on more libraries. In particular, it has a redo option:

  • @MatějKříž you can file a feature request, but we all have that one missing feature that isn't implemented. – muru Apr 13 '17 at 12:34
