shift + command + 4 and you can select whatever you want on the screen to capture.

way easier to just set it from the keyboard shortcuts in the system prefs.

I have mine set to F13 - that gives me a reticle that I can drag and copy to clipboard.

If I do shift-F13, its the same reticle but saves it as a PNG on the desktop.
