I remember seeing a post a while ago about cool tricks you can do on your keyboard to make the screens minimize slowly, or reversing the screen colors. Something about holding down the shift/command key, but I can't remember which!

ctrl+option+apple+8 for reversing the screen colors, actually it does not reverse it but shows it like a negative.
shift+minimize to minimize slowly.

cheers

ctrl+alt+apple key+8 turns scren like a negative.

Hold the shift key while using expose, or minimizing/maximizing windows to see it in slow motion.

edit:damn, beaten to it by 1 minute! :p

I just gave it a try edesignuk. That is a real cool effect, fun. I imagine that takes some memory. :cool:

option + command + 8 to turn on/off screen magnification
option + command + '=/+ key' to zoom in
option + command + '-' to zoom out

Me either. :cool:

I know that works in some apps, though.

You have to have zooming enabled in the Universal Preferences in System Preferences.

not to mention the EVER USABLE screen capture commands.

shift+command(apple)+3=full screen capture
shift+command(apple)+4=area highlight capture

a must know

in all fairness, you can do that on a PC...

Print Screen (captures whole screen to clipboard)
Alt + Print Screen (active window)

keys seem more intuitive than Shift+Cmd+3 (printing screen to a file) but I DO like Shift+Command+4
