Screenshots on Mac OS X

I know they are a hundred million other sites describing how to take screen shots on Mac OS X, but firstly, i don’t want to google every time and secondly, I wanted to add a simple statement:

why, dear Apple formerly Computer Inc, do you design such great machines, while notbeing able to add a simple way command to take stupid screen shots? Some that anybody can remember???? As of today, Google list 2,4 million entries for the search term “screen grab mac os x”. The Windoze community is used to “Print” or “Shift + Print”. Now that is simple. Please copy.

Shortcuts

Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop
Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop
Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard
Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard
Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard
In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):

Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves
Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region
Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point
