Can someone capture this headline before they fix it?
Thanks to Taylor Conant:
If I know the Times of India well, this is going to stay right there for a long, long time. So, don’t worry about getting a snapshot.
You have a Mac, right? For future reference, hit shift-cmd-4 and use the pointer to select the part you want for a screenshot
One of my favorite little things about Macs… WIth the use of three buttons and a mouse click-drag I can complete the Windows equivalent of Print Screen, open Paint, Ctrl-V, scissors tool, drag and copy, new Paint file, Ctrl-V, save as image.
Not to start a Mac vs Windows battle here, but Windows has much better tools than Paint for dealing with images. Paste into IrfanView and you can crop, resize, and save to a dozen different formats (with all sorts of saving options too).
I don’t care what the progam is. The point of the Mac shortcut is that you don’t have to open a program at all – just press three buttons, click and drag a window on your screen, and let go, and you’ve got a custom cropped image file created on your desktop.
I know there are more efficient ways to do different things in each operating system, and I use them both extensively, but when it comes to immediately creating a cropped image of a screenshot at any time, the Mac shortcut is hands-down far more efficient than opening and closing any program in Windows (unless there’s a similar Windows shortcut I am unaware of). Now if you want more options, sure, that’s why there’s a market for these things 🙂
Ah you have taught me to fish…
If more editors would leave letters off of people’s last names, that would stimulate the economy due to the increased demand for other workers to fix them – Paul Krugma
