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.

EvangeList Returns

Send Article to a Friend

EvangeList Returns -- The folks at SemperMac, a Web-based Macintosh magazine and portal site, have resurrected Guy Kawasaki's popular EvangeList, which had been discontinued in April of 1999. The EvangeList, a mouse-thumping list if ever there was one, was known for its good-news stories about the Mac, requests for help in arguing for the Mac, Macintosh-oriented job postings, and (most controversially) its calls to "educate" misinformed mainstream press journalists who had written incorrect information about Apple or the Mac. Although Guy is no longer involved with EvangeList, concentrating his efforts instead on garage.com, he gave the SemperMac folks permission to use the EvangeList name. If you were subscribed to the original EvangeList, you'll have to resubscribe on the new EvangeList pages. [ACE]
