    I ran this command in terminal to change my screen shot to jpg format. Now my screenshot doesn't work. Any idea how to fix or reverse this?:eek:


    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type image_format
    killall SystemUIServer

    That plist doesn't exist. :confused:

    You ought to be able to just delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.screencapture.plist (where ~ is shorthand for your user home folder). After that's done, run killall SystemUIServer again.

    Did you type it as that exactly?

    If you want it in jpg you need to use

    It probably doesn't work now because it is trying to save an image like this Picture 1.image_format which is not a filetype so probably errors out.
