- Example 1
shutter -a -p=myprofile --min_at_startup
- Example 2
shutter -s=100,100,300,300 -e
- Example 3
- Example 4
shutter --web=http://shutter-project.org/ -e

Please note: There are several wildcards available, like
%Y = year %m = month %d = day %T = time $w = width $h = height $name = multi-purpose (e.g. window title) $nb_name = like $name but without blanks in resulting strings $profile = name of current profile $R = random char (e.g. $RRRR = ag4r) %NN = counter
The string is interpretted by strftime. See
"man strftime"for more examples.
