command-shift-3: capture screen to file
command-fn-shift-3: capture screen to clipboard
command-shift-4: capture selection to file
command-fn-shift-4: capture selection to keyboard
However I would also recomend a freeware app from yellow mug software called SnapNDrag.
You can! If you read the thread linked above, if you press Cmd+Shift+4 then Space you can select what object you want to take a shot of!evoluzione said:i still wish i could "print window" like in the good ol' OS 9 days
There's quite an easy way to find out... try it!jayeskreezy said:do any of these let you scroll and capture? I had a windows program for my pc that did
I've followed the instructions for how to capture the screen image, and I hear the "photo" being taken. But now how do I access the picture that was taken? I tried to paste into Powerpoint, but earlier text I had copied was on the clip-board. I wasn't asked for a file name. Where did the file go?
Is there any way of saving the resulting Picture automatically from its default PNG format to a JPEG, for example?
* Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard
In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):
* Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves
* Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region
* Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point
Different versions of Mac OS X have different formats for screenshots.
* Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar): jpg
* Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther): pdf
* Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later: png
In Mac OS X 10.4 and later, the default screenshot format can be changed, by opening Terminal (located at /Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and typing in:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture type image_format
Where image_format is one of jpg, tiff, pdf, png, bmp or pict (among others). If you omit the second line, you will need to log out and in again for the change to take effect.
No need to make it difficult for something so easy
