Too awkward to "Grab a selected area" using the screenshot tool

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

Trying to accurately select an area to screenshot is difficult, especially on a laptop with a touchpad. I begin dragging, and when I release, the screenshot is taken immediately. There is no opportunity to adjust the selected area.

I would love if the tool worked like cropping does in GIMP: with squares at each corner that I can drag around to adjust the area.

Try GIMP and try the screenshot tool, which is quite awkward, especially if you want to be accurate.
