Zoom for free-hand screenshot

Asked by Ralf Hersel on 2008-07-10

Hello Mario

I don't know if this is the right place to suggest enhancements for GScrot, maybe I should issue a Blueprint.
Anyway, I suggest to implement a magnified (zoom) area when a free-hand screenshot is taken. I know this
from other screenshot tools (e.g.: MWSnap). This is an extremly helpfull feature when trying to capture an
exact area of the screen. With a small zoom window that appears close to your cross-hair pointer it is very
simple to position the mouse pointer on pixel level during start and end of the capturing process.

Regards
Ralf

Thanks for your nice idea Ralf.
I'll put this on the list of planned features. But, to be honest, i can't promise to deliver because this is a small project at the moment ;-)
