    Post screen capture

    Hold down Command, Shift and type the number 3 on the keyboard- under MacOS previous to X this creates a screen capture of your desktop and places the PICT file in your master Hard Drive, under OS X 10.1 (not 10.0.4 or below) the same key sequence does the same thing and places a TIFF file on your desktop.

    Hope this helped

    Also, command + shift + 4 lets you draw a selection and just capture the part of the screen you want...

    You learn something new everyday, I've been wondering how to do that for a while now.

    Cheers

    another trick: command + control + shift + 4 (or 3) captures to the clipboard rather than saving it to the hd. so you can paste directly into what your working in, flash, photoshop whatever. saves a step or two and doesn't clutter up your hard drive with those annoying "picture 1" etc.

    don't know if this works with OSX +, i'm on 9.1, but i know this short cut has been around since at least 7.6. (am i showing my age? i remember when mult-finder was pretty nifty).

    d.

    ps, OS10.1 really saves a tiff? that seems weird, or are tiffs a more unix friendly format?

    tiff is the native image format in OS X...

    and apple-shift-capslock-4 lets you choose a window to capture... (in os 9, not in X)
