How to take a screenshot of a section of the screen on Xubuntu 18.04?

How can I take a screenshot of a selected region of my screen?
I already tried PrtScr but it captures only fullscreen screenshots.

Add a new shortcut, and set it to execute the command below:

xfce4-screenshooter -r

See man xfce4-screenshooter for more detail.

Other xfce-friendly screenshot apps are listed here.

You can also use the combination Alt+PrtScr to only capture the window in focus.

Pressing Shift+PrtScr launches screenshooter with selector cursor
