-- Jamal Johnson, a mac expert and enthusiast who also has a roommate who works at the Apple store, wrote a new article on his blog, printscreenmac.org, about how to screen capture on a mac.
Jamal states that, even though Macs do not have print screen buttons like Windows or Linux PCs, you can still print screen on them. The insight is not commonly held among the population since most people can not see the print screen button.
Jamal, in his blog post found at http://printscreenmac.org/
on-a-mac, states the 3 different ways you can take an image of your screen on a mac. The first way is to capture the whole desktop. Another way is to capture the active window. The final way is to capture just an area.
Jamal also talks about two secret ways of capturing a screen. You can do that by using a program like GIMP or you can do it by using the print button.
"There are other ways to capture the screen. There are special programs you can obtain that will take a screenshot for you with a click of a button. Shutter is a good one, in fact, it is my favorite on Ubuntu Linux and Mac. For Windows, I usually stick to the print screen button as it does the job." he said.
