KSnapshot is a screenshot application for the KDE desktop environment developed by Richard J. Moore, Matthias Ettrich and Aaron J. Seigo.[1] The screenshots taken by KSnapshot are also called snapshots, which explains its name. It is written in Qt and C++. KSnapshot allows users to use hotkeys[2] to take a screenshot.

KSnapshot has the following features:[1]

  • Save snapshot in multiple formats
  • Take new snapshot
  • Open with... possibility to open snapshot in external editor.
  • Copy to clipboard
  • Several capture modes, including selected region or single window.
  • Snapshot delay

Ksnapshot also had a direct-to-print button but it was removed in version KDE 3.5.
