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:

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

Go Save As in Preview and change it to whatever you want. .JPG is on the list.

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!

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?
