Other easy tasks
Code a new design for the Screenshooter imgur windows
Requires: C, GTK+
Difficulty: * *
We now have imgur support in our Screenshooter, and would like to add a few options to the existing GUI to make the tool really convenient for developers and not too cluttered at the same time. This task mostly involves basic GTK+ programming, and a few calls to other existing programs. The code base does not require a deep knowledge of Xfce's inner workings.
