Using Flameshot (Linux) or Greenshot (Windows/Mac)

Learned about some pretty cool screenshot tools from Heath Adams Udemy course Practical Ethical Hacking - the Complete Course today.

Documentation provided in a deliverable report to a client is arguably the most important part of any penetration testing/red team/etc engagement.

Screenshots are always needed as part of the report, and Heath mentioned using two tools. Greenshot for Windows/Mac and Flameshot for Linux.

Ubuntu is my primary operating system so I wanted to give it a test drive.

Installing on Ubuntu is very simple

sudo apt install flameshot

Searching for flameshot in Ubuntu's application finder, will show three items.

I added "Take graphical screenshot" to Favorites in order to be able to quickly/manually launch the tool.

You can remap the print screen (PrtSc) key on the keyboard to automatically launch the tool. Click here to view my tutorial on remapping the keyboard binding.
