I really like using irfanview on the Windows platform. In it I can paste a screenshot, crop it to the part I want and then add a red box here, a blue elipse here and an arrow there.

Now that I have moved to linux, I would like to find an equivalent.

So far I can make a screenshot to a file in ~/Pictures, open it in NoMacs, crop the part I want, but I can't add a rectangle or other markings like that.

I can copy the image to the clipboard and open gpaint, but I wasn't able to paste the image into it. (Neither Ctrl-V nor Edit->Paste did anything.)

If I open the screenshot file directly in gpaint, I can add rectangles etc, but I can't crop the result.

My feature request is either to allow a paste from another program or to add cropping as a tool. (Ideally this would allow cropping to a ratio or freestyle.)

Thanks for considering this request,

Jim Henderson <jimh44>
