I've started using
scrot for screenshots; this works beautifully, but occasionally I need to edit screenshots to
- blur personal information
- add text
- add arrows
- add a box around something
I'm looking for a lightweight bitmap editor that will launch quickly from the command line (so that I can use it with
scrot --exec), and will allow me to add blurring, text, arrows and boxes with a minimal number of keystrokes, mousing. Ideally, I'd like a keyboard shortcut, then select area for any given action.
Does anyone know of such a beast?
Edit: I don't consider Gimp to be lightweight: it launches slowly, drawing shapes involves a two step process -- select area / stroke selection -- the second of which doesn't seem to have a shortcut key... I'm looking for a tool that I can use to make edits in a couple of seconds, and save.
