    Open up Terminal (it's in your Applications/Utilities folder) and type the following (must be exact, no typos whatsoever) then hit enter:

    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg

    After you've done that, type the following then hit enter:

    killall SystemUIServer

    Hope this helps.

    Also for future reference, the program Onyx can do that without having to type code into Terminal.
