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.

'Take Control of Keyboard Maestro' would be very welcome! I struggle with using variables and find the documentation, while welcome, assumes too much prior knowledge. Bundle with 'Take Control of AppleScript', please.
Update: just spotted the earlier item - http://tidbits.com/article/13784 - suggesting Take Control of KM might not be a bestseller. Fair point, but I would still be grateful! :-)
We'd love to do a book about Keyboard Maestro; the problem is figuring out how to make it worthwhile from a business perspective.
