Deepin Scrot is a slightly advanced terminal-based screenshot tool. Similar to the others, you should already have it installed. If not, get it installed through the terminal by typing:

sudo apt-get install scrot

After having it installed, follow the instructions below to take a screenshot:

To take a screenshot of the entire screen:

scrot myimage.png

To take a screenshot of the selected aread:

scrot -s myimage.png

It only does PNG, but Firefox has a way to capture the whole page built in: Shift-F2 brings up a command prompt, which includes a screenshot command. For instance, screenshot –clipboard –fullpage as I was writing this answer produced

If you want something designed to be automated, phantomjs has page.render() which takes a filename and an optional options object, with format and quality entries; the example given is

page.render('google_home.jpeg', {format: 'jpeg', quality: '100'});
