Most of you may know the Mac OS has built-in keystrokes that allow you to take a screenshot of your desktop.

There’s even one that allows you to be a little more selective about your screenshot.

    That’s a great tip, Chita. I knew about shift-command-4, but I didn’t know it was possible to move or resize the selection.

    Here’s a tip others may find helpful. If you also hold down the Control key (Shift-Command-Control-4), the resulting image gets copied to the clipboard, instead of being saved as a file on the desktop.

    Thanks Steve,
    I’m still waiting for that ultimate shortcut that let’s you take a screenshot of a screenshot. That little camera is elusive!

    I wish I had the memory to remember those Key commands but I much prefer using the Widget called Screenshot Plus. It gives all kinds of options using a GUI format and takes 2 seconds to use. You can grab a whole screen or part of a screen or do a Timed recording (to get your mouse out of the way), you can grab a whole window or part of a window and you can save the screenshot in any format you want.
