Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots

Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):

• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.

• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.

• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.

• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.

• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

I was an iWeb "orphan". I had made a list based site that had listed all my CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays. When I found out it was going to be another non supported Apple item... again (Apple HomePage) being the first, I panicked. I purchased a Web Page from Hover and began my search for a Web Page builder as elegant as iWeb. I tried 3 different web Page builders before trying Sandvox. As much as it worked it couldn't let me "free form" my pages. That is... put my text boxes and graphics on the page freely "by hand". My next move was to the Adobe (Beta) MUSE. This is a "free form" app. of the first degree. The problem with MUSE was that it takes so long to Save (Save changes to a page and Save to shut down) and to "upload" a site (3 hours or more). Anyhow all is mute because what Apple has done with iTunes and the iCloud I dont need to do anything but sit back and enjoy everything with my "new" iPad (third generation)... When I think of all the hours I spent making those lists
