DESCRIPTION
       gnome-screenshot is a GNOME  utility  for  taking  screenshots  of  the

       optional beautifying border effects.

OPTIONS

              Send the grab directly to the clipboard.

       -w, --window
              Grab the current active window instead of the entire screen.

       -a, --area
              Grab an area of the screen instead of the entire screen.

       -b, --include-border
              Include the window border within the screenshot.

              tangular space around the screenshot), ``vintage'' (desaturating
              the screenshot slightly, tinting it and adding rectangular space
              around it) or ``none'' (no effect).  Default is ``none''.
