How To Install The Latest Hotshots Screenshot Tool On Ubuntu 14.10 Ubuntu 14.04

Hotshots is a screenshot tool with some editing features. It is particularly suitable for writing documentation.

Because HotShots is written with Qt, it runs on Windows and Linux (MacOSX isn't tested yet).
Why this name, Hotshots ? Firstly, I'm a fan of Jim Abrahams's film and my second choice was Screen'n Shot but I'm not sure the pun will be perenne.  

Current Features

  • Grab current screen, all monitors (in case of multi-monitors configuration), current window or a part of the desktop.
  • Save the screenshot in multiple formats (PNG, JPG, BMP, ...).
  • Automatically save the screenshot to clipboard, disk or launch the editor tool.
  • Automatically scale the screenshot to a given size.
  • Use “system” shortcuts to take a screenshot.
  • Add automatically some “post-effects” to the screenshot (drop shadow, rotation, border, …).
  • Add annotation items (text, arrows, rectable, ...) to the snapshot.
  • Can be minimized to system tray and work in background.
  • Can be launch at system start-up (Windows).
  • Export edited image in multiple formats (PNG, JPG, BMP ...).
  • Save/Restore edited image in proprietary format.
  • Send image directly to printer or to web service.
