The Gimp also has a nice screenshot taking utility. You can access it by going to File > Aquire > Screenshot. If you don't want to have the gimp displayed in the pic, you can just open it in another desktop, set up a timer, and switch to the one you want. Since you often will want to edit/save your screenshots with gimp anyway, this is a handy built-in feature.
