Kaption captures a screen region to draw arrows, boxes and text

on it. You can save or upload the result then.

Under Construction

This is a new page, currently under construction!

You can add several types of shapes and captions to points out important sections of the screenie.

Kaption is going to become the default application to prepare screenies for KDE UserBase Wiki.


  • Screen capture
  • Ability to draw arrows, boxes, ellipses and text on the captured region
  • Ability to choose color, size and font of your drawings
  • FTP/SFTP Upload with clipboard support for custom code. Custom code? It can be a web site pointing to the ftp directory where the image has been uploaded. When the upload finish Kaption will copy the code into the clipboard so you can share the screenshot quickly with anybody


After you started Kaption you will get a new sys tray icon. Hovering over it explains, that you have to click on it to start capturing a screenie.

Getting Kaption

You can get Kaption from KDE-Apps.org here...
