I have trouble with the smallest, most insignificant things with technology quite often and I continue to be flummoxed by the smallest details of the Mac as well. Thought I would go out of my mind trying to easily copy URLs...duh, 1, 2, 3 clicks, command-copy!
Ok, now to the main purpose of this post. You know HOW much I love to use screen shots and how fun I think it is that on a Mac, you actually get to hear the camera "click!" In case you are missing the screen shot key from the PC keyboard, on the Mac it is command-control-3.
BUT if you really intend to use the screen shot, that is a whole
other story! After piling up a bunch of junk on my pretty, clean desktop that were totally useless (on several occasions), I FINALLY clicked Help tonight and read about GRAB...an application that allows you to select the portion of the screen you want before clicking and allows you to save your shot in the format of your choice in iPhoto.
So ridiculously E-A-S-Y! Why do I insist on making things difficult? Help is on a computer for a reason!
GRAB is now is now a permanent resident of my Dock.
