Tips for capturing screenshots on your Mac

I often capture screenshots on my Mac. I usually use Skitch but that is more because I didn't take the time to learn how to use my Mac's bundled tools more effectively. I found a great article that explains how they work.

Capturing screenshots on your Mac may be old hat for most Mac users. If, like me, you are a little unsure about how to do this on your Mac, definitely read Macworld’s article titled “How to take screenshots on your Mac“. It is really useful.

I usually use Evernote’s Skitch to capture them because it’s easy to annotate them and drag them into whichever app I am working in.

Lately, though, it is frustrating to use it. Something changed and I often need to restart the app to get it to recognise the keyboard hotkeys to launch the clipping windows.

I knew that Mac OS had a built-in capability to take screenshots but I didn’t take the time to learn the various options so I just stuck with Skitch.
