    Apple-Shift-3 takes the whole screen, Apple-Shift-4 allows you to select the area you want captured. The files will be on your desktop with filenames picture1 and 2 ETC. you can open them in Preview and save them as JPG or whatever you want. They are default .PNG.

    You can also find a Widget called "Screenshot Plus" on Apple's web site which will allow you to take pictures of other widgets and everything. After you take the picture it'll show you a preview and you can save it to your desktop as a .png
