    several dashboard screen capture widgets let you change their format.

    Not certain that this is what you want, but once Grab has taken a pic, go file->Save as and choose the format.

    Basically any app for image manipulation will let you open a file and save it as whatever format you choose.

    Onyx (search Macupdate), has a GUI for changing this, just saw it today.

    I think I wrote an Automator script that captured screens in another format, or perhaps it converted the one you just captured to some other format. It was something my wife needed to use with Powerpoint, if I remember correctly, and it worked for what she needed.

    If you don't have a better solution, I could track down that script for you. But, knowing you can change image file formats in Automator might be enough of a clue if you want to do it yourself.

    You don't have Mac OS X 10.3 by any chance...?

    If so, you need to use Grab (or some 3rd party tool) to get screen shots in various formats...
