Taking screen shot in Mac OSx

Taking screenshot in windows is very simple. A keypress can do that but on Mac it requires a combination of keys. But on the other hand, the added advantage in Mac is that you can select the area under screen shot very easily.

1) Taking full screen shot
Command[Apple] + shift + 3 = take a screen shot. The screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop.

2) Taking selective area screenshot
The same instead of 4 brings up a cross and can take a screen shot of a selection. A cross-hair cursor will appear and you can click and drag to select the area you wish to capture.

3) Taking screenshot of an application window
To capture a specific application window, press Command-Shift-4, then press the Spacebar. The cursor will become a camera, and you can move it around the screen. On moving cursor over an application window, the window will be highlighted. When you have the cursor over a window you want to capture, just click the mouse button and the screen shot will be saved as a PNG file on your desktop
