screenshot with mouse pointer included (not accessible in 2.8.10)
Hi,

I'm using Gimp 2.8.10 and would like to make a screenshot with mouse pointer.

http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-file-create.html
I have found this tutorial (please see Figure 16.8.) where this seems like a possible solution if I select: Take a screenshot with the entire screen + Include mouse pointer.

But my Gimp (allthough the last, that is 2.8.10, version) does not have that option. If I select File/Create/Screenshot I get a window where only 2 things are possible (it looks like some older version of Gimp in my opinion): a) Take a sreenshot of a single window b) Take asreenshot of the entire screen.

Any idea what to do? I have reinstaled Gimp but the problem remains - I do not have that window (Figure 16.8) that would allow me to choose the "include mouse pointer".

Thanks in advance for any help,
M4i4

Windows - WinSnap - very much cut down version. Do not bother reinstalling, it is the same going back to a Gimp 2.6.something I have installed in a WinXPsp2

That 'full' version you will get if you use linux.

Workarounds, not sure, just tried in my windows machine Faststone capture - no cursor and the old trick for video capture - turn off hardware acceleration - still no cursor capture

So that is me stumped.

Thanks to both of you.

I think I'll use kevin's way of pasting the cursor image afterwards.
