    How would I redefine where the screen capture utilities (command-shift-3, etc.) place the image? I can cut out a step in my work if, rather than placing the image on the desktop, I can place it in a specific folder (or even a network folder).

    If you install the Secrets prefpane there are several options you can change regarding screen captures, including the file destination.

    works - but not to network

    Thanks, Miles.
    This may be as close as I can get. It works well, but won't save to a network folder.
    Thanks for the help.

    Can you save to an alias of a network folder?

    Can't post to alias

    No, I've been trying to do this without success. I also tried saving directly to the network folder.
    In Windows, I could map a drive to the specific folder; am now exploring that possibility in OSX (10.6).
