Shell: update screenshot and screen recorder
Update screenshot and screen recorder
gnome-shell allows taking screenshots and has a built-in screen recorder, it can take screenshots and record screencasts of an area, a window or the whole monitor. Right now, screenshots can be taken using the gnome-screenshot utility or by pressing certain key combinations, recording screencasts only works by pressing a key combination. Remembering all those combinations is hard, especially when not using them often, also it turned out a lot of people are not even aware features like the screen recorder exist. The plan for this project is to unify both the screenshot and the screen recorder functionality within a single UI that's part of gnome-shell. This will make it easy to select an area or a window to screenshot/to record, especially on devices like tablets or phones where no keyboard and mouse are available. You'll work together with our design team, implementing design mockups and iterating on the changes to make for a great user experience.
