Centos 6/RHEL install Shutter Screen Capture

Shutter is a fully featured multilingual screen-shot capture program using gnome-web-photo (for web pages) and with a huge array of features and plug-ins.

It is free to use and is available for Centos 6/RHEL users via 
nux-dextop repo for any architecture.
 
URL Capture
 
Some of its many features include auto generated file names, 
web page capture via URL, tabbed captures, 
individual navigator windows, 
full size web page capture, zoom to selection area, 
pre-capture re-size, 
plug-ins such as 3d Rotate & Fish-Eye.
 
It has a built in tool box with numerous functions including 
cropping to size and a censor button to hide private data 
which you may not want to appear.

For more detailed information see http://shutter-project.org/
