    but what does command+shift+ctrl+4 do?

    it brings up the same crosshair for selecting, and allows you to still crop a part of the screen, but after the cropping, nothing happens.

    what's the purpose of this?

    It puts the screenshot on the clipboard.

    See the Screenshots guide for more information.

    I thought what it did was do a screen shot of only what you select.

    Try just command + Shift + 4. This will place a .png file of your screenshot on the desktop.

    Adding Ctrl to any of these sends the shot you take to the clipboard instead of the desktop as a PNG.
