Sorry if this is in the wrong section. This might be a really stupid question, but if I think an image might have a virus in it, can I take a screenshot using my mac instead of saving it? I know that just by looking at it I may have gotten a virus if this were the case, I just want to know if sending the screenshot to my friend (to show him an example of what I was talking about to him earlier) will damage his computer. If it won't hurt his computer, why is that? Are screenshots completely unique files? Does it just copy all the pixels from the screen and that's it? Sorry, not that knowledgeable about computer and need a fast answer.
