Captured

Posted in Commentary at 6:53 am by Michael Sweeney Media

I found a nice list today of hints for screen captures with OSX, the blog gave credit but the site doesnt exist anymore so here they are, creditless and unloved:

  • Command +Shift+3 = grab screen to pdf file on desktop
  • Command + Control + Shift + 3 = grab entire screen and place on clipboard.
  • Command+Shift+4 = grab region of screen to pdf file on desktop
  • Command + Control + Shift + 4 = grab a region and place it on the clipboard
    I this one pretty useful, it allows you (for example) to grab a screen area and paste it into an email message…
  • Note when pasting into a program creates tiff format image – this is often more convenient than grabbing a pdf and converting it to whatever format you need. You can also tap the spacebar to invoke the camera cursor. As you move the camera cursor around the screen windows will highlight – click to capture, places grabbed window on clipboard.
