Everyone knows the Shift+PrtScr trick to take a screen shot with a PC. I had to take a snapshot from RDP within and OS X session and I did not have a PC keyboard attached. That led me to discover that the Mac is way more powerful than the PC for screen shots right out of the box. Here is how:
- To capture the entire screen, press Command+Shift+3.
- To capture part of a screen, press Command+Shift+4.

Even though the article describes Panther, it seems to work on Leopard and Tiger as well. On Leopard, the default format is png and not pdf as the article described.
