    shift + command + 3 = Whole screen shot
    shift + command + 4 = selection screen shot
    shift + command + spacebar + 4 = window screen shot


    Or if you need timed screenshots then you can use Grab.app in your utilities folder.

    Command+Shift+4 allows you to click and drag a section of screen to capture, and Command+Shift+4+Spacebar allows to you select a specific window to capture.

    Edit: SORRY! COMMAND, Shift, 4, and the rest.

    ctrl+cmd+shift+3 copies full screen, and you can paste it in as an image in photoshop, keynote, powerpoint etc.

    ctrl+cmd+shift+4 copies selection
