Description

How about a nice little sound effect when taking a screenshot? I'm sometimes not sure if I really did hit the print key right and it'd be even more handy when using a delayed shot: Did I catch what I wanted?

I can go looking for license compatible sounds if needed.

Perhaps something like the iPhone's Screenshot Flash would be helpful as well for people who have their speakers muted? Not sure how technically possible this would be, but you can see what I'm talking about right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPEJIb1EWdk&t=9s
I think both of these should be optional though, and maybe the sound should disabled by default, as some people may be used to screenshot functionality on other operating systems where no sound is played (imagine if somebody was playing a video with their system volume on max [because the source video has low volume], and saw something cool in the video, so he decides to take a screenshot only to jump out of his seat from the loud unexpected noise).
