#BikinMudah – Screenshots are an essential part of any digital documentation process. They’re also useful when you need to capture something that doesn’t fit into a standard screencast. In this tutorial, learn how to take screenshots on Mac OS X.
Create a new document.
Open up System Preferences > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad. Click the “Show All” button at the bottom left corner of the window. Then click the “+” icon next to the “Screenshots” section. You will see a pop-up menu with three options: “Take screenshot”, “Record screen”, and “Take snapshot”. Choose “Take screenshot” and press the space bar. This will open up a new window where you can choose what area of the screen to capture.
Select the area you’d like to capture.
Once you’ve selected the area you’d like captured, click the “Save As…” button. Save the file as a.png image. If you’re using Safari, you can also use the Print Screen key (Command + Shift + 3) to save the image.
Press Command + Shift + 3.
You can also capture images with other applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketch.
Choose Save As… and save it as a PNG file.
If you’re using Windows, you can use Snipping Tool to capture a screenshot.
Now that you’ve taken a screen shot, you need to save it somewhere. There’s no shortage of options when it comes to saving images, but one of our favorites is Apple’s own Preview app. It’s free and easy to use, so there’s no reason not to try it out.
