Screenshots Preference Pane... The Mac has always had the ability to take high-quality screenshots without the need of any additional third-party software. However, Apple has long controlled the format of the resulting picture, along with where it ends up on disk. This has meant that, when Apple decided to change any of these settings, there wasn't much that could be done about it.

Fortunately, Apple has finally given us a way, in the form of a .plist file, to change these settings. Unfortunately, taking advantage of this has meant a trip to the terminal every time you wanted to alter either setting.

I've been using this little pref pane utility on my macs for a long time now and I don't see why everyone gives it such a hard time. It works great and is mondo fast and easy to use

Yes I know it only takes 2 lines in terminal to do the same thing. But when you are in a hurry and don't keep the EXACT terminal commands memorized all the time, and have to go to a mac help site and look them back up everytime. With this it is MUCH faster to just click on Settings and then the Screentshots item and change them with your mouse and BOOM your done!

Also complaining about giving a developer a lousy $2 for something that can be done for free just doesn't make much sense to me. I just timed it and it took 3 minutes to do it the terminal way and 15 seconds to do it the Screenshots Preference Pane way. I know what my time is worth on a busy day. How about you?

Or use "changecapture" that is free, and no need to open the dreaded terminal.
