    How can you turn off the shutter sound that occurs whenever you take a screenshot using the keyboard shortcuts? The answers I've found through extensive Googling include:

    • Mute
    • Disable all system sounds
    • Use Grab

    all of which are not satisfactory.

    You could replace the sound file with one of your choosing, including a silent one:
    /System/Library/Components/CoreAudio.component/Contents/Resources/SystemSounds/system/Grab.aif
    Here's how to take a screen shot and post it.
