For most of people, image take a very good part in creating mood. Sometimes, someone want to take some screen shots from some images to use into some purposes (and I think I use some words that you spell it some).
Mac supplies you with the feature to taking screen shot, that its smoothness is the best. You can capture screen shots into the form of file or you can capture into clipboard for making further modification to your print screen.
I think you all know how to use this print screen thing works. Therefore, I will just give you some tricks of screen shot making.
Customizing Screenshot Shortcut
Do you realize that, Mac uses Command-Option-3, Command-Option-4, Command-Option-Shift-3 and Command-Option-Shift-4 for screen shot taking? Those are very long keystrokes.
For people who often use this screen shot. I suggest you customize your shortcut. You just need to go to QuickSilver and use keyword keymouse and then customize your screen shot shortcut. For your reference, I only customize shortcut for save picture of screen as file to F13. You see, just one key, we can take picture of the entire desktop.
Screenshot the Screenshot Area
Probably, many will wonder, how I take that image above. I did not use any camera and did not draw it by myself. That is a trick behind this. First, you make your screen shot region (Command-Option-4). After that, press your shortcut for take whole screen shot of your screen (I use F13). Be sure to release your mouse as soon as possible, so the file made up already by the area print screen will be replaced by the full print screen. Is it simple?
