    Now that kImageAnnotator 0.6.0 has finally been released Spectacle can now support cropping in its annotation mode, provided it is rebuilt with the new library, which is the case for version 22.04.1-2 on Arch at least.

  • Lighter alternative to GIMP?

    I actually just learned about Ksnip, because I first wanted to recommend you KDE Spectacle, but I noticed it didn't show a crop tool. I discovered Spectacle uses Ksnip's kImageAnnotator for editing and thus discovered Ksnip. Somehow Ksnip does show a crop button and other features that are not enabled in Spectacle. I think I like Spectacle more for quickly taking a screenshot, while Ksnip seems nice to have for a quick edit.
