maim (make image) takes screenshots of your desktop. It has options to take only
a region, and relies on slop to query for regions. maim is supposed to be
an improved scrot.
* Takes screenshots of your desktop, and saves it in png or jpg format.
* Takes screenshots predetermined regions or windows, useful for automation.
* Allows a users to select a region, or window, before taking a screenshot
on the fly.
* Blends the system cursor to the screenshot. screenshot with cursor
* Masks off-screen pixels to be transparent or black.
* Maim cleanly pipes screenshots directly to standard output (unless otherwise
specified). Allowing for command chaining.
* Maim supports anything slop does, even selection shaders!
