more screencapture tips
Authored by: sjk on Apr 23, '05 05:36:02PM
The Secret Screen Capture Shortcut describes how adding the control key modifier will capture to the Clipboard instead of a file. And screencapture can be run from the command line:
% screencapture 
screencapture: illegal usage, file required if not going to clipboard
usage: screencapture [-icmwsWx] [file]
  -i      capture screen interactively, by selection or window
            control key - causes screen shot to go to clipboard
            space key   - toggle between mouse selection and
                          window selection modes
            escape key  - cancels interactive screen shot
  -c      force screen capture to go to the clipboard
  -m      only capture the main monitor, undefined if -i is set
  -w      only allow window selection mode
  -s      only allow mouse selection mode
  -W      start interaction in window selection mode
  -x      do not play sounds
  -S      in window capture mode, capture the screen not the window
  file    where to save the screen capture
