    the same you did in leopard, tiger, panther, jaguar, and probably 10.0 and 10.1 haha.

    Command Shift 3 - whole screen
    Command Shift 4 - selection
    Command Shift 4 and then hit space bar - click on a window to snap a shot of that window

    next time, just google "os x" - basic stuff like this doesn't change with every update of the OS!

    An old thread now, and you probably figured it out, but I'll put my 2 cents in.

    Preview > File > Take Screen Shot.

    If you use Grab, you have the additional option of "timed screen" (10 second delay) under the "capture" drop-down menu.

    When I use Grab, after I save the file, it saves it in .tiff format and I seem to always have to open the file in preview and re-save it to .jpg or .png if I want to upload it.

    Grab might save in other formats as well but I've been too lazy to check.

    You could use a format conversion utility as well.

    I think this is easier:

    Command + Shift + 4 at the same time and you get you a courser with a can take screens of what ever area you like, whole page, small sections, etc. Try it!
