OS X :: Screenshots Not Working In 10.6.2


I'm currently running Mac OS X 10.6.2 on my mid-2007 white macbook. I recently reinstalled Snow Leopard, so I'm not positive if screen shots have been working before on this current installation. My problem is that whenever I attempt to take a screen shot, using cmd-shift-cntrl-[3 or 4], the snapshot noise is made, but no image file appears anywhere on my desktop. I have tried searching the computer for files containing "screen shot" in the name, and none come up, so apparently the file is not being saved anywhere on the computer. Neither restarting Finder, nor restarting the computer solved the problem, so I'm stuck.

OS X Leopard :: Screenshots Not Working - No File On Desktop
When I try to take a screenshot (Command + Shift + 3/4) I get the camera sound, but a file is never created on my desktop. I have searched my drive and can't see that these images are going anywhere. Any ideas? It worked before, just happened 2 days ago.

OS X :: Best Way To Take Screenshots Of Particular Areas?
I'm around 2-3 days away from my MacBook Pro arriving, and I was just wondering what is the best way to take screenshots on a Mac? I need something that can be made to take a screenshot of a particular window (automatically scale to the size of the window).

OS X :: Screenshots Always Comes Out All Black
Every time I take a screenshot (regardless of method: via preview, screenshot, selection or screen mode shortcuts), it always comes out all black! Luckily I have Snapz Pro X for video capture so I can show you what I mean, but it's much more of a pain to use on a regular basis. This has been going on for about a week and a half now.

MacBook :: Where Are Screenshots Going
I've been trying to figure this one out for quite some time now. I'm using the command+control+shift+4 option to take a quick screen shot like I always have, but they haven't been posting to my desktop. I've searched all of my files for .png as the should be saving, but they aren't showing up. A tool I used that was recommended to me was to download OnyX and I could control where the files were not only being sent to, but also what type of file they were (.png, .jpeg, etc...)Regardless of where I would choose for them to go they are still showing up.

OS X Leopard :: Where Screenshots Are Saved
Whenever I take a screen shot it (using the short cut) used to be saved directly to my desktop, now whenever I take one, I couldn't find it. Is there any other place where my screen shots are saved? I don't remember changing it's location folder coz I don't even know how to. I don't really like using Grab.

OS X :: Screenshots Not Saved To Desktop?
For the first time, my screen shots [command + control + shift + 3] and [command + control + shift + 4] are not saving to my desktop. I don't recall changing this setting (or how to). Where are they going? I haven't installed any software that should conflict with this macro (haven't installed anything at all except Sim City 4 since last using the screenshot feature. The desktop folder is empty and a search for "Picture 1" finds nothing.

Applications :: Detect When Screenshots Are Taken?
I've but a bit of thought (and research) into this with no avail.

Basically, I'm trying to detect when a screenshot is taken.

The people over at CloudApp say they do it by monitoring the users screenshot path (com.apple.screenshotpath or whatever) and looking for new files that start with "Screen shot". However, this isn't reliable.

The people over at grab.by wouldn't reveal their secret method, but, a search of their help database reveals "Additionally TinyGrab for Mac will not auto-upload images if 'Spotlight' indexing in OS X is disabled."

P.S. I'm a total noob at this. Try to take some time dumbing things down

OS X :: Where Are Screenshots - No Longer On Desktop
For some reason my screenshots are no longer showing up on my desktop, or anywhere on my computer that I can find. When I press Command + Shift + 3 or 4 I can hear the snap sound but it doesn't appear on my desktop. I've tried Spotlight search for "Picture" but found nothing. It was working fine a few days ago, I don't know what happened.

OS X :: Screenshots Really In Color Safe Or Not?
I'm not so sure about whether the screen shots my Mac (Mac OS X 10.5.8) really is color safe or not. Because if I compare the colors in my screen shots with the actual screen, the colors variate. Is there a way to extract a screen shot with the exact colors?

OS X :: Want To Take Screenshots Of Website Homepages
My company wants to take weekly snapshots of our website homepages (22+ websites). Is there a mac app to schedule a task, specify the URL etc? I thought I had seen an app that would do this but cant recall the name/url. Doing a shift-command-3 isn't a viable solution.

Software :: Unable To Take Screenshots?
I am unable to take screenshots using Command-Shift-3 (in order to take a full screen screenshot). Oddly enough, I am able to take screenshots using all other shortcuts, just not using the shortcut Command-Shift-3 , which is the feature that I want to use. Using the program 'Grab' works, but I don't want to use that program, especially for video games.

I have recently installed a program that allows me to take videos and screenshots, and it used a shortcut to 'open' but I set the hotkey/shortcut to another combination and it still doesn't work. The program is Snapz Pro X.

I am using Mac OSX Tiger with the latest updates on a Macbook Pro.

give me step-by-step instructions on how to get this to work. I don't remember changing this option in any settings, or if there is even an option to change these hotkeys, but I would really want to keep Snapz Pro X as a program...so I don't know what to do. You guys are the experts.

EDIT: I did some more troubleshooting, and I realized that there is a place where you can change the mac hotkeys to other things.

Oddly, the shortcut is the exact same as the new Snapz Pro X hotkey that I changed it to. Before, it was Command-Shift-3. I changed the program's shortcut to Command-Shift-9, and that's what 'save picture of screen as a file' says. I just changed the option (not from the program) back to Command-Shift-3 and tried it, but Snapz Pro X came up, so apparently the two hotkeys are linked to each other.

Software :: How To Use Screenshots More Efficiently
While studying I often summarize stuff i learned in a word document, and because its handy not to rewrite everything, i used to copy material out of pdf documents. Most of them are protected so i use the program "bildschirmfoto" (I guess its called screenfoto or screenshot in english) which is already installed on leopard.

- So I make the screenshot of the material (selected area)
- I save it to my desktop and then
- Drag it from the desktop to my word document

I guess there is a more comfortable way to do this. Like just select the area I want to screenshot and then dragging or pasting it into my word document - without the need to save it in between.

MacBook Pro :: Very Slow Screenshots?
Whenever I take a screenshot (cmd+shift+3/4) my screen freezes for 10+ seconds.

I'm aware that she freezing part is the image being taken but I find it hard to believe that it takes 10+ seconds to save it?

I know this is not a huge issue but I'd still like to get to the bottom of it.

OS X Leopard :: Where Do Screenshots Go - Directory Not Writable
I have been using capture of selections of my screen (cmd-shift-4) for years, with thecreated image file showing up on my Desktop, but suddenly there was a corruption in the Finder and now when I try to capture a selection I get the message that the directory is not writable. I have been trying to find where this destination directory is set and have not succeeded. I don't even know which application handles this (it is not "grab").

OS X :: Screenshots In OSX Always A Bit Blurry?
I've noticed that using Apple's Grab, or any other screen capture application I've tried, I always end up with slightly blurred text.

It doesn't matter if the capture is saved as TIFF or PNG or other lossless format, or as 100% JPG. Here's an example from Grab. The text doesn't look the same as it does on the screen originally - I've put an example there using Photoshop to show how the text actually looks to me on screen. You can see that the text in the screenshot is blurred.

Is there any way to get around this? Any screen capture software that can get me sharp text?

Snow Leopard :: Cut Off Window Screenshots ?
In Snow Leopard, when I try to take a screenshot of a window that spans the entire width of the screen (such as iTunes) the right side of it is cut off. The drop shadow is missing from the right side of the window.

When I did this in Leopard I'd get a screenshot that was 1520 x 890 pixels. But in Snow Leopard I now get a screenshot that's 1440 x 891 pixels. 1440 is the exact width of my iMac's display, so a screenshot of a window should be wider than the width of the screen, to include the drop shadow. So it seems there's a bug in Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Restrictions - Screenshots Cannot Be Saved
I have a MacBook Pro OS X Version 10.6.5 and it is not allowing me to take screenshots, whenever I do a small box comes up on my screen and says 'Your screen shot can't be saved. You don't have permission to save files in the location where screen shots are stored.' Another problem I'm having is that, when I try to put something in the Trash, a small box comes up saying, 'The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access some of the items.' If it does allow me to delete an item, it says, 'Are you sure you want to delete "What Ever Item I'm Trying To Delete"? This item will be deleted immediately. You can't undo this action.'

Software :: Screenshots Now In PNG Format Using Leopard
I often take screenshots. com > shift > 3. They used to be pictures then became PDF's and now png in Leopard. Is the average computer user able to open these without problems? Is it the sort of thing an XP user could just double click on and open without problems. If not, is there a way to convert them to PDF?

Snow Leopard :: Safari Takes Screenshots Of Its Window
I just went through a huge amount of files from Data Rescue 2, after loosing a huge number of photographs, I got them all back, except the most important event, typical. However, amongst all the files, were a huge number of files, were talking thousands here, ranging in dimensions but all having a horizontal dimension of 900 and something. They were all screen shots of safari windows, nothing more, nothing less, no menu bar, dock, desktop viewable at the sides, nothing, just the window. I haven't managed to see a pattern to them.

OS X Leopard :: Cannot Restore Screenshots File Naming Convention
I'm desperately trying to find out how to change Mac OS'Grab's automatic naming conventions from my current "SShot 1", to the much needed, usual "Screen shot 2010-11-18 at 6.00.32 PM.png" (I need the date stamp!). I've found out many ways to change the image format (.png, .jpg, etc), but haven't been able to change the automatic naming. I wonder if using Snapz Pro X (an awesome, highly recommended image and video/audio capture app) is creating a conflict in settings.

OS X :: Leopard Window Screenshots Adding Drop Shadow?
something i noticed leopard does now, probably in the .2 update.

As cool as it is, I don't like not having the option to turn this on/off.

I know there are workarounds, but I love the ability to hit command shift 4, then space, then click a window without having to drag a crosshair.
