PyScreenshot is a Python module and built since the PIL ImageGrab module only supported Windows, although Pillow now supports Linux and macOS as well. Flexible backends, Wayland compatibility, occasionally superior performance, and optional sub-processing are some of the main features of PyScreenshot that make it more useful in many scenarios.
