Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174151
add size reduction and compression to ksnapshot ?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 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
Keep up the good work. Linux and Fedora rock. It is getting better and
better with each release.

ksnapshot of my full desktop
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.
