I don't have a MAC.. but I hope this helps.
Taking Screen Shots
You can take screen shots with Grab. But there are lots of times you just want a quick snapshot, in which case you can use one of the tricks listed below. The pointer will not appear in the shot, though, which might or might not be an issue in a particular shot.
Each time you take a screen shot you'll hear the sound of a camera shutter snapping, and an icon will appear on your Desktop called Picture 1. As you create more shots, the files will be named Picture 2, Picture 3, etc.
Double-click any screen shot to open it in Preview. Drag any screen shot to a Photoshop icon to open it in Photoshop.
- To take a screen shot of the entire screen, press Command Shift 3. To get a crosshair cursor to take a screen shot of just a portion of the screen, press Command Shift 4. Drag over an area. To take a screen shot of a selected item, such as an open window, an icon, or the Desktop, press Command Shift 4, then press the Spacebar. The pointer turns into a camera icon that highlights items beneath it, as shown on the left. When the item you want to shoot is highlighted, click the mouse.
- You can take a screen shot that will go straight to the Clipboard (it will not make a Picture file) so you can then just paste it directly into a document or into something like a Photoshop file: Press Command Shift 4 to get the crosshair, then hold down the Control key. Drag over an area. You'll hear a much smaller snapping sound.
Go to your document. If it's a text document, click the insertion point where you want the graphic to paste in. Then press Command V to paste the screen shot onto the page.
