Screenshots in KDE

Today's little Linux tidbit... I'm a big fan of screenshots. You know, taking a snapshot of your computer screen and saving it as an image file. I use them in my teaching handouts, to save photo scrapbooks of the online game I play (Ultima Online), lots of stuff. In Windows, taking screenshots is easy - hit the PrintScreen key (or Alt-PrintScreen to capture only the current active window). Or you can use a fancy prog like Snag-It ($$$$). But how do you take screenshots in Linux?

Well, if you're running KDE, there's a neat little program (and it's free!) called Ksnapshot. I found it under my main menu, under Multimedia - Graphics.
Good stuff!

Gosh I love Linux!
