    I would like to change screenshot (when F3 pressed) file type from TIFF to PNG. I am not talking about Grab.app in this case.
    Does anybody know which pfile holds this parameter?

    I found it:

    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type png
    killall SystemUIServer

    To change the default format for screencap images, type the following in Terminal.app:
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg (or whatever extension you prefer)

    To change the default folder for screencap images, type the following in Terminal.app:
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location "/Users/username/Desktop/" (or whatever path you prefer)

    screenshots to automatically number instead of date/time stamp?

    Does anyone know how to get the screenshots to label automatically as a number the way it used to do in Leopard? That would be so helpful.
