Capturing a Screen Shot
To take a screen shot on a Mac OS X system, you can use the Grab
application that comes with the operating system. To use it,
take the following steps:
- With the finder, locate the Grab application which will be under
- Select Capture.
- Then select what you wish to capture. The choices are as follows:
- Timed Screen
- If you selected Window, you will see a Window Grab window
appear offering you the chance to choose the window you want to capture. You
can click on that window to select it and then click on the Choose
Window button to capture it with Grab.
- Click on File and then Save to save the screen capture
to a TIFF
Grab will save images as
File Format (TIFF) files. You can convert such files to another graphics
format, such as Joint
Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format using the Preview
application that also comes with the operating system. Preview
is located in the
Applications folder. To convert a file from
TIFF to JPEG using it, take the following steps:
- Open Preview, which is located in
by double-clicking on it.
- Choose File.
- Chose Open and select the file to convert.
- Choose File.
- Choose Save As and select the file format you wish to use. You
can choose from the following file formats:
- Microsoft BMP
- Click on Save.
There are also other third-party applications that will allow you to
convert files in one graphics format to another.
As an alternative to running
Grab and then
Preview,you can open
Preview and then from within it, select
File and then select Grab, which will allow you to capture
a window with Grab while inside Preview where you can select
the file format you wish to use when you save the image. That can save you
some steps in the process.
