Mac OS X Screen Capture

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

In my last post I was discussing keyboard shortcuts and I had 2 screen capture images. I’ve already had a few people ask me how I was able to do that.

I used the built in screen capture capability of OS X. Press:
Command + Shift + 3 to capture the whole screen. The captured picture should now be on your desktop as Picture 1.png
Commange + Shift + 4 to capture part of the screen. When you press that key combination, your cursor turns into a crosshair. Just click and drag the area you’d like to capture. The picture will again be on your desktop.

You’ll find these and other helpful utilities at the following post on Mac Dev Center.
