Snapper is a versatile screen capture program. It allows you to save a specified area of the screen as a sprite, png or jpeg. The modes of operation of Snapper are
- save the entire screen area
- save the window under the mouse pointer, including the window title bar and scroll bars
- save the contents of the window under the mouse, without any of the window furniture
- save the area inside a user definable box, the size and position of which can be adjusted, either by dragging with the mouse or by entering the required values from the keyboard
Snapper has been tested successfully on the BeagleBoard, PandaBoard, iMX6, IGEPv5, and on the Raspberry Pi.
Snapper was originally written by David Pilling, and supplied as a component of his scanning and image processing software suite. With the full agreement and cooperation of David, Chris Johnson has taken on the maintenance and development of Snapper, and the latest version is now freely available to all. A further consequence of this is that any correspondence about Snapper should be directed to Chris Johnson, and not to David.
