    How do u take a screen shot in mac osx 10.4 tiger?
    hey everyone, i want to take a screen shot of my desktop so i can send it to my MACLESS friend so he can see what he is missing, I figured out how to make adium look like my contacts are just on my desktop and won't move so i don't have to shrink it it just stays.. Let me know how to take a screen shot please..

    Thanks :bone:

    For a full screenshot, you do this keyboard shortcut:

    Command (or Apple key) + Shift + 3

    Use Imagewell. It's free...and very easy to convert to jpg.

    Yep, Preview comes with Mac OS X. So you can just use Preview like dtravis7 says. :girl:

    BTW, if you want to take a user-defined screenshot (with crosshairs) you simply hold down the Command (or Apple key) + Shift + 4.

    For extra pizzaz/eye candy, you can hold down the Command (or Apple key) + Shift + Spacebar + 4. This will take a screenshot of your frontmost window: but you'll get your very own camera to take your snapshot!

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    To capture the screenshot in a different format you can follow the following guideline.

    1)Open the Terminal.app (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.App)
    2)Type screencapture -i <filename>.<format> (eg. screencapture -i image1.jpg) and hit enter.
    3) Now the cursor should turn in to a crosshair(+). Select the area you want to capture

    That should be it.

    thanks NOVICE, I will check that out as well.. That is the more show off way, people that see that won't know what is going on, can u change the screencapture -i image.jpg to screenshot.jpg? Or any other file name?
