Screen shots are saved - by default - as files on the desktop. If you want to put the screen shot in the Clipboard, rather than create a file, hold down the Control key when you press the other keys. You can then paste the picture into a document and save it to a folder. I find it vaguely annoying to have screenshots named as just Picture 1 and sequential. We can make our gripes known to Apple I guess.

You can also take pictures of the screen using the Grab application (in the Utilities folder). There's nothing in Prefs to enable sending a pic to a folder though.

Edit: an amendment to the use of Grab. If you use it (instead of Cmd-Shift-4), you can Save As the screenshot that Grab has taken, to a folder of your choosing.

Or you can install Onyx! Open the Parameters Tab. There you can set the file type OSX Screen Capture saves as and the path and even filename!!

Onyx is a great utility besides all the maintenance tasks it automates for you.

Good one dtravis! Perhaps the ss I've attached may help others to know which setting to establish. [update: your attached pic didn't display initially - I regret the duplication.]

One thing puzzled me though - I was warned twice that finder display would list items down the R side of the window - but it didn't!

there is an easy way, use grab for all of the pics, keep it open in the dock, when you want to grab a screenshot, or selection, use the menu, then when it prompts you to save, you can select the file or destination to save it to
