Keyboard shortcuts for screenshots in OS X

I love keyboard shortcuts and are always amazed at just how many useful ones I don’t have the slightest idea about. So I have to share these tips I got from a colleague.

For a quick screenshot from selection in OS X just press
shift+cmd+4
and your pointer turns to a crosshair for the selection. (press esc to abort)

Or for a quick full screen screenshot press
shift+cmd+3
The screenshots are by default labeled with the time and date and saved to your desktop.

Hopefully this enlightened someone else too.
