Taking a screen shot with Mac OSX

With OSX Lion, screens shots can be done a few ways:

Take screen shot of complete desktop and save to desktop
  • Command-Shift-3: Save to desktop
  • Command-Control-Shift-3: Save to clipboard

Take screen shot of a specific window or selection. With this option, if you press space after the key combo below instead of dragging your mouse while pressing the mouse button, it will select the entire window/object that the mouse is currently over. After selecting the entire window with the space bar, you will still need to press the mouse button/left mouse button to take the picture.
  • Command-Shift-4: Save to desktop
  • Command-Control-Shift-4: Save to clipboard
