Short Review about Hotshots
I have been using Hotshots for some times and love this software. This just works with me on my Ubuntu 14.04. It has all the tool to create rectangular, freehand, window grabbing. I can take any screenshot of my screen easily. Additionally, it has a built in image editor which can be used to add anotation to the screenshot.
