grimshot [--notify] (copy|save) [TARGET] [FILE] grimshot check grimshot usage
Show notifications to the user that a screenshot has been taken.
Save the screenshot into a regular file. Grimshot will write images files to $XDG_SCREENSHOTS_DIR if this is set (or defined in `user-dirs.dir`), or otherwise fall back to `$XDG_PICTURES_DIR`
Copy the screenshot data (as image/png) into the clipboard.
Grimshot is an easy to use screenshot tool for sway. It relies on grim, slurp and jq to do the heavy lifting, and mostly provides an easy to use interface.
A recommended usage pattern is to just bind this to Super+P via sway:
# Screenshots: # Cmd+P: Current window # Cmd+Shift+p: Select area # Cmd+Alt+p Current output # Cmd+Ctrl+p Select a window bindsym Mod4+p exec grimshot save active bindsym Mod4+Shift+p exec grimshot save area bindsym Mod4+Mod1+p exec grimshot save output bindsym Mod4+Ctrl+p exec grimshot save window
grimshot can capture the following named targets:
Captures the currently active window.
Captures the entire screen. This includes all visible outputs.
Allows manually selecting a rectangular region, and captures that.
Allows manually selecting a single window (by clicking on it), and captures it.
Captures the currently active output.
Grimshot will always print the filename of the captured screenshot to stdout.
