    How do you take a shot of your current screen on OSX? I know in Windows, its PrintSyn, but what is it in OSX?

    you can either use grab, which is a utility in OS X,, or you cn press Command-shift-4. that'll bring up cross hairs, just drag it across the area you wish to capture.

    In addition, Cmnd-Shift-3 will take a shot of the entire screen.

    You can also press command-shift-4 the hold the cursor over the window you want to take a shot of and press space bar then click to take the shot.

    Hmmm

    is it just me or does Snapz Pro come with new machines or did i just get that anyways?

    Besides, great program, does all that except you can save to any format and it does movies too..
