Adds a camera item (look in production next to the pickaxes) that allows the player to select an area (like with blueprints) and then takes a screenshot of that area.

By default the files are saved in "%factorio_dir%/script-output/Screenshot-camera" and are named regular.png or alt.png depending on which mode was used.

Zoom, file paths/names, show GUI and anti-aliasing settings can be edited in the settings menu (as of 0.4.0).

Please note that the resulting file may be over 50MB for large screenshots.
