You’d think taking a screenshot of an app with a context menu showing (while keeping its alpha channel & drop shadow) would be easy in elementary OS but it’s apparently impossible in any X11-based system… until you use a chroma key, that is!

1. Set your wallpaper to green.

2. Take a delayed screenshot of the whole screen using Screenshot app.

3. In Krita, apply a Color to Alpha filter to the green and tweak the threshold until your drop shadows don’t have a green tint to them.

Et voila! :)

Missing alt-text (sorry): Screenshot of Krita, a drawing application, showing a screenshot of Comet (a git message editor). The message in the editor reads “Highlights splling mstakes” with the last two words underlined in red. A Spelling Suggestions… context menu is open on the word “mstakes”, and the suggestion “mistakes” is highlighted out of a list of several options.
