What is xfce4-screenshooter?

This application allows you to capture the entire screen, the active
window or a selected region. You can set the delay that elapses before
the screenshot is taken and the action that will be done with the
screenshot: save it to a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, open it
using another application, or host it on ZimageZ, a free online image
hosting service.

A plugin for the Xfce panel is also available.
