Taking screenshots on a Mac

Just a quick post about taking screenshots on a Mac. Other Windows switchers may lament the loss of their old 'print screen' button but fear not! There are 2 options to replace this Windows feature. The first in the following key combination: shift-command-3 - this will output a png image file to your desktop. The second is the 'Grab' feature, which in an Application sitting in the 'Utilities' folder. This little program offers you the capacity to grab single Windows and entire screenshots, depending on what you need.

Actually, you can do both without the need for the Grab utility.

Shift + Command + 3 takes an entire screen grab.

Shift + Command + 4 allows you grab only a selection of the screen.

Plus if you then press Spacebar your cursor turns into a Camera allowing you to point and click on a specific window and capture just that window.
