Snapshots don't work with secondary monitors. You can make snapshots of the main screen only. Perhaps you can use a command line utility instead.

I don't pass a rectangle since I don't know where the image is on screen and unfortunately it seems I can't get the rectangle [the user opens up] returned to me. I do, however, get an image imported, although on a system with two monitors in extended display mode it seems almost random where the actual snapshot gets taken from. It's anything but where the user actually dragged.
