Shutter is available for download directly from Ubuntu Software Center. After download, it is automatically added to the Accessories list.

Shutter performs much better than "Take Screenshot" (Gnome-screenshot) I mentioned in the earlier post.

It allows capturing full screen, active window, window objects, or a fixed rectangular area. The captured object can be presented in GIMP image editor directly for resizing, etc. With Shutter, a window image is captured with a window frame as the user is usually looking for.

IMO, this should be included as a default screen capture tool rather than Gnome screenshot in Ubuntu 9.10.

I'm considering to add Shutter as an alternative program suitable for Linux users in the article Best Free Screen Capture Utility.
