ok I've read the manual....:roll eyes:


and to do a screen capture on a MAC you have to press CMD - Shift - 4 all at the same time, this puts a cross hair mouse pointer on your screen

then you left click and hold, then drag mouse pointer across the area you want to capture, when finished release left click & pointer at the same time

capture is made and saved on your desktop as a .PNG file with DTG as file name

so next step is to change file type to .JPG (this is done by opening file then export as JPG)

the rest is the same as with windows...

Jeeze ya think that will work on an iPad, that ctrl-shift-4 might be a bit of a challenge.

HAHA would ya believe it !!!!

by mistake I just hit CMD-shift-3 and it does a screen capture and saves it straight to desktop!!!!!!!!!!! so much for google know it all!!

I must have looked at at least half a dozen google search results for Screen capture on a MAC and they all said CMD-shift 4

right back to the webcams........ ;)

ok by doing it this way I still have to crop out the excess around what I actually want to post :hummm: but it's quick and I can get a capture every 2 secs if necessary!!:cool:
