How to Change the Screen Grab Destination and Image Type
I’m assuming that you all know the Mac OS X Screen Grab feature to take a picture of your screen using the shortcut + SHIFT + 3.
I use this feature a lot and as a result my desktop was getting littered with lots of “Screen Shot 2012-02…” files, plus the output file was a .png type and I prefer .jpg as my default file type.
To change the destination (say to a “SCREEN_GRABS” folder on your desktop instead) and file type to jpeg I used the free utility Onyx to change these parameters.
It’s very simple to action:
- open Onyx,
- click on the “Parameters” button,
- and change as necessary.
As Alexander the Meercat says, “Simples”.
