Following on from my colleague Anton’s blog entitled “How to Change Screen Grab Destination” and Hugo’s blog “How to Remove the Shadow on Mac Screenshots“, I thought I would share with you all a few additional options available whilst taking a screenshot.
Remember that as well as performing a Full Screenshot (⌘+Shift+3) you can perform a Selection Screenshot (⌘+Shift+4).
During a Selection Screenshot try out these little extras :
- Hold down the option/alt key during a capture to grow the selection from the centre as opposed to an edge.
- Hold down the shift key to lock in the vertical or horizontal position.
- Hold down the space bar to move the selection while locking in the aspect ratio.
- Hold down both the shift key + space bar to lock in the horizontal or vertical while moving the locked selection.
