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.[citation needed]

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