Did you know that if you hold down SHIFT-COMMAND-4 you can take a picture of any part of your screen? Press SHIFT-COMMAND-4 and your cursor will turn into a cross-hair. (Try it right now!) Click and drag over anything and you can take a picture. It’s how most of the small pictures on this website are made.
Useful for all kinds of things, for example:
Grab a screenshot of a keynote graph:
Grab a heading from pages:
Grab a receipt from a webpage:
The top of your screen:
Or any information you want to keep:
I use Shift-Apple-4 a few times every day!
Also, Shift-Apple-3 takes a shot of the entire screen – I use this much less.

You can help me by clicking on any other article. Google have started penalising this site because it is so good! People read an article, get the answer they want, and leave. I think this is a great thing, but Google have a different view. They call it a 'bounce' and have started penalising sites that people only visit one page on. They perceive it as 'you didn't like what you saw, so you left' when in fact it could have been 'you got what you needed so you left.'
