gnome-screenshot should let the user choose the screenshot's file format
Binary package hint: gnome-utils
The gnome-screenshot utility doesn't let the user choose the file format of the screenshot, it automatically saves the screenshot in .png.
I think at least .jpg should be supported because it's ligher than .png.
The use of a screenshot usually is to show others the desktop/
If one wants to upload the screenshot, that is in .jpg, somewhere it takes much more time to upload than .jpg, especially if one has a slow internet connection.
