I found this here: Screen Capture, Screen Shots, and Screen Grabbers
If you have Mac OSX, it's easy to use the built-in key commands for grabbing a screen.
* Press Command (Apple)-Shift-4. The pointer turns into a bull's eye.
* Select the area of the screen you wish to capture. The screen is captured and saved as a PDF file called Picture 1 on your hard drive.
* If you hold down the Control key in addition to the Command (Apple)-Shirt-4 while clicking the bull's eye, the image is stored on the clipboard.
If you have Mac OSX, you can also use the Grab Utility. This allows you to capture windows that are open.
* Open Grab (located in Applications/Utility).
* Choose Capture > Timed Screen.
* When the Timed Screen Grab dialog opens, click Start Timer.
* Click the menu you want to capture and keep the mouse button pressed until the Timer Screen Grab dialog closes and the picture appears.
