Would be very nice to have a button "Screenshot" on the toolbar, which saves the current target window as PNG.
This is different to take a screenshot on the local machine as a local screenshot would produce a scaled-down or clipped image.
The "screenshot"-button should save the remote image with the size and resolution of the remote machine.
There should be no "Save-as" dialog, increment a number in the filename.
The directory and template for the automatically numbered filename should be in a new page of the "settings"-dialog

Great idea. To save a bit of work, we could save directly to the user's pictures dir XDG_PICTURES_DIR...
I have marked this issue as "newfeature".

Ok, let's start a new contest: a new icon is needed for the toolbar for this feature. Is anyone able to design one ?

Are there any requirements for the icon?

Would this work? The license seems compatible.

I like material design, but this icon should use the same style of the currently available icons. They are not perfect, we would like to change it, but every new icon should follow the same style.
Here are the current remmina icons: https://github.com/giox069/Remmina/tree/next/remmina/icons
I think we need two .png files, one 16x16 and one 22x22.

With a window in the middle, it more looks like a briefcase (paste button?:)

What do you say?

@ozbek I like this last design and thanks for your suppert.

But I think the best is to have a camera icon. It's what most application use to take screenshots.

Something similar to this.

farm-fresh_camera_small

For the format and the sizes we need the following:

128x128
16x16
22x22
24x24
32x32
48x48
64x64
72x72
96x96
scalable <------------- svg format

Thanks!

@giox069 do you already have some code ? I was playing around today and I think I should be able to implement this feature (or share ideas with you).

We are implementing this feature in this branch https://github.com/FreeRDP/Remmina/tree/remmina_screenshot

There are still some bugs and we must improve a bit the code, but it can be used.
