Shutter is a great screen capturing utility for Linux users, and often it is referred as the free Snagit alternative for the Linux world. If you haven’t tried it yet on Manjaro Linux, I suggest to try it out! It is feature-rich and can do basic image editing tasks like Crop, blur, resize, dress-up, etc.

Installing Shutter in Manjaro

Shutter is available from the Software Center. Launch ‘Add/Remove Software’ and then look for ‘Shutter’.
