Screenshots to the clipboard in Mac OSX

In Mac OSX you can take a screenshot that will be saved directly to your clipboard.

ctrl-shift-cmd-4 will change your cursor to a cross-hair. Drag to select a region of the screen. When you finish dragging, the image data will be saved to your clipboard, reading for pasting into iChat, Mail, or whatever you like.

To capture an entire window, use cmtrl-shift-cmd-4-space.

That's awesome. I've been doing this with Grabber, but this is much better. From

Or if you have trouble remembering long keyboard sequences: launch and select File Menu -> Grab -> Selection.

Right. In Tiger's, you can do this.

I can add that to this list, then.
