    Flameshot: screenshot tool with built-in editing

    I came across Flameshot here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYj_XCgSfHY&t=172s

    It's in the Universe repo in 18.04.

    Seems decent.

    Have you found an AppImage link?

    BTW, what does "callout" mean in the OMG piece?
    take screenshots on Linux and annotate them with arrows, boxes, and callouts — no external editor required.

    Looks good vasa1.
    I'm a fan of shutter but Flameshot could be a replacement.

    I was able to compile and install flameshot in Xubuntu 17.10 from https://github.com/lupoDharkael/flameshot#installation

    And the developer is working on text annotation: https://github.com/lupoDharkael/flameshot/issues/11

    You don't see three choices? Maybe you pinned the wrong choice to your launcher?

    Re: Flameshot: screenshot tool with built-in editing

    It seems to me that this might be a bit confusing for some with 3 entries for flameshot.
    To open flameshot via terminal:
    Code:
    flameshot
    To set Configure Flameshot:
    Code:
    flameshot config
    To Take graphical screenshot:
    Code:
    flameshot gui
    And to me the above is identical to the first "flameshot" More below
    And:
    Code:
    flameshot full -p Downloads
    You can use the "-p" flag for path to save to.
    More on:
    Code:
    flameshot --help
    Usage: flameshot [flameshot-options] [arguments]
    
    Options:
      -h, --help     Displays this help
      -v, --version  Displays version information
    
    Arguments:
      gui            Start a manual capture in GUI mode.
      full           Capture the entire desktop.
      config         Configure flameshot.
