    If you use Yahoo Widget Machine, they have a nice little widget called "Screen Shot". It's a small tab that you can put anywhere on the edge of your screen and clicking it takes a shot. The default is jpg format.

    Specs:
    Mac mini i5, 2.3Ghz dual core, 8 GB RAM, OSX 10.8.2
    Install Onyx, a free graphical user interface for many system functions that are available through Terminal.
    Set your desired image format and path.



    I'm very lazy. That's why I also changed the /way/ a screenshot is taken:



    Incidentally, Microsoft included something like my Apple-Shift-F13 in Windows Vista. Except my method is still a tad slicker, inasmuch as it saves and names the images automatically.
    I has a signijer.

    Yah, don't shoot your screen. It won't like it!
