10 Tips and Tricks For Taking Screenshots On Your Mac

Here are some tips if you are ready to move beyond taking simple screenshots. You can have screenshots go directly into apps or save to a location of your choice, change the image type to get smaller files, and streamline the process with hidden keyboard shortcuts.

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.
