    Do we have any applicaton or tool readily available on Mac for taking screen shot.
    These screen shots I want to use for documenting my application.

    Need help.

    Regards,
    Satyam.

    It is built-in to the OS. Try,

    Command+Option+4 (for rectangle tool selection)
    Command+Option+4, then Space, then click on the window you want.
    Command+Option+3 captures the entire screen.

    Enjoy!

    Have a look at this guide for some built-in options.

    Snapz Pro X is a neat app for taking screenshots and movies. It costs a few bucks, but it might be worth it.

    I have not had any of those keystrokes work for me in Leopard. I wonder if my KVM blocks them from being run. Everything else works fine, but none of those have ever worked.

    So, I'm using a Dashboard Widget called Screenshot Plus 3.0, and it works fantastically.

    I think it's actually Command+Shift rather than Option. I didn't know about the window shot with space bar, so thanks for that!

    May I recommend SnapNDrag. Very easy to use, and free for the basic version. I have used it for years.

    Post removed because the software I pointed to has not been released and the OP specified something readily available.
