I am noobie to macs and was wondering how do you take a screen shot on 12" PB? Thanks.
Taking Screenshots in Mac OS X
Out of curiosity, what's the point? Is there a better format?
Well, I think that PNG is generally considered a better format than JPEG (not that JPEG is bad), and I for one hated the PDF default, as part of the point of taking a screenshot is to include it in something else and/or crop it, and PDF files don't accommodate either option all that easily.
There is a great widget called ScreenShot Plus which does a great job.
Meh. I don't really like donationware that much.
Geez - couple months I've had my Mac and wonder how to do a screen shot and save to desktop...as simple as command-shift-3!!
but now I am thanks!!
edited to add: 'tis easier not to post at all..
It is not donationware.
Don't leave too much space please.
You should try it before rejecting it out of hand, it's a fantastic widget! Not donationware either.
SnapNDrag is even better! Even though I haven't tried the other one . . .
Another neat trick on this which I only learned the other week is when you have the screenshot cursor up, press the spacebar and it will turn in to a camera, taking an exact shot of the window you want.
Or you could just push Shift+Command+4.
