Description Kim Lux 2005-11-25 02:23:20 EST
Description of problem: 
I've got a large desktop.  Dual montiors, 1600x1050 each.  From time to time 
I'd like to send people screenshots of the whole desktop because I run 2 apps 
side by side, one in each window. 
Ksnapshot works well for capturing the whole desktop or the individual apps.  
No problems there.  
There are two problems though: 
a) ksnapshot captures them at 1:1 size, meaning I get a 3200 x 1050 image.  
People with no computer skills complain they can't view them and for most of 
the captures I do, this is way overkill.  Yes, I can scale them down, but it 
is a pain. 
b) The file size gets huge.  
a) add a "reduce image size" and let the user put the reduction ratio in or 
have 1.5:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1 as drop down options.  (real:image ratios) 
b) let the user adjust the jpeg quality/compression factor.  Didn't ksnapshot 
have this feature at one time ? 
Otherwise ksnapshot is a great application.    
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
rpm -q kdelibs 
rpm -q kdegraphics 
Additional info: 
Keep up the good work.  Linux and Fedora rock.  It is getting better and 
better with each release.

Get the picture ?  This would be fine viewed at 1/2 or 1/3 size.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Closing for lack of feedback.
