Check out 10 Tips and Tricks For Taking Screenshots On Your Mac at YouTube for closed captioning and more options.
Here are some of the Terminal commands mentioned:
Get rid of the shadow:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow false; killall SystemUIServer
Change to true to re-enable the shadow.
Change type of file:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture type JPG; killall SystemUIServer
You can use PNG, GIF or PDF as well.
Brilliant information thanks Gary.
Hi, Gary. The above mentioned terminal command didn't work on my Mac. After googling, I found that 'defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool true' does the trick. Thanks for the tip.
I've been using screenshots for some time now, but after watching your video, I realized how many options I was not aware of! Thanks - I will save lots of time for future work.
I was trying to do a screenshot of a complete page on Safari. Normally you get the entire screen, but I want the part you can't see below the bottom of the page and need to scroll to view. I saw this tip which works fine but does require a few steps -https://www.idownloadblog.com/2021/04/08/capture-full-page-screenshots-safari-firefox-chrome-mac/. Just wondered if there was a quicker, simpler method?
When I select the screenshot app on my m1iMac running Monterey and click on Message as my destination, nothing happens. I would expect an iMessage window to pop up, but that doesn't happen. All the other destinations seem to work fine, but Messages just doesn't appear. Thoughts on that? I'm running OS 12.1.
Mark: As for Messages, a bug I guess? As for web page screenshots on a Mac, just use Firefox when you need that. https://macmost.com/screen-capture-entire-web-pages-on-your-mac.html
