    How do screenshots work on a Mac? How do I take one? How do I save one? Is it a .PNG file usually?

    Can someone explain to me about the screenshot process.

    Command+Shift+4 lets you drag a section of the screen to be captured.
    Command+Shift+4+Space lets you select a particular window to be captured.

    Command+Shift+3 is a screenshot of the entire screen and saves the image as a PNG to the desktop (just like Print Screen + paint)
    you can change the file format though

    Your Mac comes with an application called grab. It in your Utilities folder and will allow you to do all types of screen grabs.

    You can download a program called iGrabit and this will alow you to record what you are doing on your screen and save it as a .Mov . Pretty sweet.
