    I've done screenshots before but have recently reinstalled OS X Tiger on my powerbook and now I can't take screenshots, I'm not sure what the problem is, everything else is fine.

    You're using command-shift-3/4/whatever, right? When you hit command-shift-4, do you get the crosshairs like you should? If not, that's pretty odd, but I'd have to think that something you've installed (maybe a macro/shortcut application?) is interfering with that key combination.

    If you do get the crosshairs, but no image is saved to the desktop, then I have to think either the permissions are messed up in some way that's preventing it from being saved, or maybe you used a tool like TinkerTool to change the format or save location and that's got something screwed up.

    Have you installed any hacks/extensions/system tweaks?

    By way of 3rd party apps, may I recommend Skitch?

    It's got all the ease of Grab (or whatever the OSX app is called) but also lets you draw and type on your images and post them on the web. It's very slick.
