Ubuntu/Gnome/Mint/Centos How To Take a partial screenshot

By default printscreen or alt print screen will get the whole desktop or the application in focus, respectively.  But what if you want to select a portion of the screen?

gnome-screenshot:

ksnapshot

compiz

This is a nicely integrated solution

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Then open the settings wizard and go to Extras and check off the "Screenshot" Option

 

You should be able to hold the Windows Key and drag to take a screenshot now (does not work on Linux Mint 18 though).

You can also change the initiate key by clicking on Screenshot in Compiz:
