I am used to working with screenprint a lot in the PC
I capture the screen then open Ps or Il and simply CTRL V the capture into whatever I am working on.
Could someone tell me how to do comparable in Mac please?
Thank you in advance for any info!
Command (⌘)-Shift-3 will yield an entire screenshot - file will be saved to your desktop.
You can also do Command (⌘)-Shift-4 to get crosshairs or Command (⌘)-Shift-4 then spacebar to capture an entire window.
Grab (located in the Utilities folder) is another option, depending on your OS...
By the way you can find the capture short cuts in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Screen Shots - There you can change it to whatever you want. It would also behove switchers to look through all the shortcuts available.
Also to note in the keyboard shortcuts dialog box for switchers there is a pick for Full Keyboard access. If you want tab to act like it does in windows select All Controls so that tab moves through all choices in a dialog box.
* Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop
* Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard
* Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard
In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):
* Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves
* Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region
* Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point
Grab is good. Preview is the default app your screen shots will open in and it can be used for a number of things as well. Crop, adjust size, creating arrows or circles on your screen shot, etc. etc.
