@Ali and @Aere,
I've done a small write up on scrot here:

Scrot can be set up to save files to the Desktop so that the images are
right in front of you and get dealt with ASAP. Also, there's the
Alt+PrintScreen option to take a snap of just the active window. One more
tweak that scrot allows is to choose the quality of the image by use of the
-q switch. I've set up both PrintScreen (full screen) and Alt+PrintScreen
(window in focus):

PrintScreen: scrot -b -d 5 ~/Desktop/%Y:%m:%d:%H:%M:%S.png

Alt+PrintScreen: scrot -u -b -d 5 ~/Desktop/%Y:%m:%d:%H:%M:%S.png
