Changing screenshot format to jpg in MAC

19 Aug 2009 on learning

So the default image for screen shots in MAC is png. And we can change it to jpg! Tom Merrit shows how to do it in Cnet's "How to" podcast:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. type in: defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg
  3. Log in again
  4. Test it: Shift + Cmd + 4
  5. the picture file created is in jpg :P

Here's another post on how to change the default format!
