"convert"(Imagemagick perhaps?) is not part of OpenBSD base lvlamb, so again, if that's the case, why not just use "scrot" as previously suggested?

I have read of import command as part of the package imagemagick.

But all these solutions are command-line based.

I don't know is scrot is a good solutions i read the download page of the productors the last release:
scrot-0.8.tar.gz 23-Jun-2003 08:14 73k
is stop from many years.

Is it possible to have a GUI?

Install zenity and you can write a wrapper to use a gui. If you weant me to, I can write an app, 2 lines, 50 lines of man page and 200 lines of license just to say it is free to use.

Scrot is a package, as ImageMagick.

You don't need to use convert, you xwd dump can be re-read with xwud wich both are part of Xorg/xenocara stock. No need for pkg_add.

I might be stupid, but I can't imagine anyone dealing with image file formats /image manipulation to not install ImageMagick.

Beyond this, scrot needs imlib2.

Fwiw, when you install gkrellm, you may install the snapshot. Or, use the GNOME spashot, just needs some XFCE goodies to use GNOME plugins.

Re- beyond this: xwd/xwud is available on amy XFree/Xorg platform.
If you want to search for specific apps, be my guest.

Right click on the panel > "add new item" > drag "Screenshot" item to the panel.

If you have ImageMagick installed, my own feeling is that the easiest way to do it is to use the import command. One assumes that you want these screenshots viewable by others, and this way, they can view it in any image viewer. Actually, it's easier for me to type convert screen.jpg than to type xwd -out screen.xwd and then type xwud -in screen.xwd. Maybe because I'm left-handed.

I use fluxbox and have keyboard shortcuts to move windows around. If I want a screen shot, I usually move the xterm to the very bottom or top of the screen so that only that one line where I'll type the command is showing, then type my import command. This way, I get most of the screen without the terminal in the middle.

If you don't have ImageMagick installed, then as was said, xwd and xwud are probably the best way.

This thread is probably a perfect illustration of the comment that in Unix, there's always more than one way to do something and someone is sure to think your way is wrong.

The advantage of import over xwcd, in my opinion, is that you can choose the format of the image as you create it. As I usually take screenshots for a reason, often to share with people using Windows or Mac, this saves a step for me.

A GUI for taking screenshots would be Gimp. But I think it's a bad idea to install such a huge thing just for a screenshot.
