There is no screenshot by area on my Galaxy Tab 8.9, running Android 3.1.

Is there any software that adds the ability to take a screenshot of only a portion of my screen rather than the whole area?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Since when does Super User develop the Android operating system or Samsung tablets? – slhck Jan 3 '12 at 12:24
What do you mean by "screenshot by area"? Like taking a screenshot of a specific portion of the screen rather than the entire screen? – eldarerathis Jan 3 '12 at 14:05
@eldarerathis Yes, I want to take a specific portion of the screen. – Masi Jan 3 '12 at 17:30

There is no tool with this feature. But it is possible to crop the picture in the gallery.
