Delay before selecting gives you more control over precisely what is
captured, since it happens at the moment you click, where the state of
the window might change in some cases when using delay after

Also, what if the window in question cannot be put into the proper
state until after the delay starts?  A full screen app/game that
cannot be (de)focused, for instance.  I have, on rare occasions,
encountered this need, where I have to apply a delay before selecting
and use that delay to actually start the program to be the target of
the screenshot.
