    when i use pc, i use this thing called screen hunter, where you set the folder where you want photos to be saved, and just buy pressing a hot key, a picture of your screen will be saved in the destination you chose. Is there any software like for mac?


    Thanks

    OSX has a built in app called Grab but I find the keyboard shortcuts to be easier.

    I think you can find the answer to most of your question here:

    I'm not sure about changing the target destination of the screen capture. I'm sure you can, I'll have to look when I get home.

    Keystrokes, baby. It's the fastest way. Learn them. (y)
    command+shift+3 (full screen)
    command+shift+4 (selectable area)

    I use those two, but Grab enables you to perfectly grab an application window, so no wallpaper/background gets captured when you do the screen grab.

    command+shift+4+spacebar does the same thing and it's faster. It also adds a cool drop shadow.

    You bet! I don't think you can set a destination folder using the keystrokes.

    By any chance do you have any fairy liquid to spare? :D

    Display catch is useful when you want to describe something that is challenging to describe in terms. Another choice is to use screen recording unit Mac. This is even better as movie is documented instead of still pictures. There are several programs that you can select from if you want to history videos clip of your screen for demonstration or trial.
