hot Mac screenshot goodness

by Rob Friesel

Very nice tip for folks that want to get screenshots of “mouse-down sensitive” events in OS X (e.g., drag-and-drop operations).

  1. Initiate your drag-and-drop (or other “mouse-down sensitive”) operation;
  2. ⌘⇧4 to invoke the screenshot area selector;
  3. hit the spacebar to convert it to the window selecting “camera”;
  4. click the window with the right mouse button.

Voila!  Simple and effective.

I’ve long forgotten the standard screen cap commands thanks to Skitch (www.skitch.com). It has the added benefits of some nice quick and easy editing of screenshots, and being able to share and link to the image straight from the desktop app.
