Bug Description

The attached is what the image looks like when I tell shutter to capture a screenshot of my desktop.

It looks similar when I try to capture by selection or by an individual window.

Basically, all of the screenshots captured with shutter under 17.10 using Wayland are garbage.

Is there an alernative to shutter which we can use until such time as this is fixed?

You need to switch to Xorg to use Shutter, Wayland is not supported. If
you'd like to do so, here is how: https://itsfoss.com/switch-xorg-wayland/
