It provides several options, including capturing the whole desktop or just a single window, a time delay function, and some image effects. These options are also bound to keyboard shortcuts, PrtSc for whole screen, Crtl-PrtSc for current window, and Shift-PrtSc for area of the screen, which then automatically saves the screenshot to a file in the home directory. In beginning of 2017 it is nearly the only application which works on Gnome with Wayland.

Similar applications include Shutter which provides more options, and Spectacle in KDE.
