Recommended Posts

Hello Guys.

?

I bring a pretty easy guide that can be useful for Mac users and Hack users.

?

Mac/Hack.

Use your mouse to draw a rectangle in order to specify what to capture – or press the spacebar and then click on something (e.g. a window) to capture it. Your Mac then saves it as a file on the desktop. The file name will look like:

Bonus: Cmd in Hackintosh?could be Windows or Ctrl

How to change that?

For keyboard shortcuts haters? :D? Grab utility may come in handy.

?

On the other hand, for Terminal geeks, this command is must have:

?

usage: screencapture [-icMPmwsWxSCUtoa] [files]

? -c ? ? ? ? force screen capture to go to the clipboard

? -C ? ? ? ? capture the cursor as well as the screen. only in non-interactive modes

? -d ? ? ? ? display errors to the user graphically

? -i ? ? ? ? capture screen interactively, by selection or window

?? ? ? ? ? ? ? control key - causes screen shot to go to clipboard

?? ? ? ? ? ? ? space key ? - toggle between mouse selection and

?? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? window selection modes

?? ? ? ? ? ? ? escape key? - cancels interactive screen shot

? -m ? ? ? ? only capture the main monitor, undefined if -i is set

? -M ? ? ? ? screen capture output will go to a new Mail message

? -o ? ? ? ? in window capture mode, do not capture the shadow of the window

? -P ? ? ? ? screen capture output will open in Preview

? -s ? ? ? ? only allow mouse selection mode

? -S ? ? ? ? in window capture mode, capture the screen not the window

? -t<format> image format to create, default is png (other options include pdf, jpg, tiff and other formats)
