Mac Screen Grab Shortcuts

All too often when writing to a blog, pictures can speak more than a 1,000 words and it becomes a bother to easily get a screenshot. These shortcuts will help speed things up:

  • Command-Shift-3 shortcut for taking a screen capture of your entire screen and saves it to the desktop as “Picture x.png”, where x is an incrementing number.
  • Command-Shift-4, which gives you a crosshair cursor so you can choose which area of the screen you want to capture and saves it on the desktop like the previous command.
  • Control-Command-Shift-3 (or 4), which, instead of creating a file on your desktop, copies the capture into your Clipboard memory, so you can paste it where you want.

We hope this tip has helped you to make better use of your time, and enhancing the blog-space by showing through pictures, what to do or say. Happy “grab-ing”.
