Use the timer option in the new screenshot popup app.
Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ 5
Select Capture Entire Screen on the left & 5 seconds from the Options menu
During that 5s countdown, hit Cmd ⌘ Tab ⇥
The resulting image will contain the switcher [intentionally tiny picture]
Interestingly, whilst composing this answer I discovered you ...
In even older versions of MacOS (I did this in 10.11 El Capitan), you can use the Grab tool, found in the Utilities folder.
Launch the Grab application.
From the menu, select Capture > Timed Screen.
Click Start Timer, and hold down Cmd + Tab for about 10 seconds until the Grab dialog disappears and the screen flashes.
Save the capture. Grab saves in TIFF ...
You can use the timer from the default app Screenshot in macOS.
Open the application.
Then, select the 10 s or 5s timer.
Also, prefer to take fullscreen
Click on 10s and then press your Application Switcher and wait.
It will take the required screenshot
I found a solution that works really well. You're able to record with ffmpeg using an input device called avfoundation.
Here is an example command-line:
ffmpeg -f avfoundation -pix_fmt yuyv422 -i "1:1" -t 10 -vf crop=1280:720:1:65 -r 30 output.mkv
You may or may not get asked to specify -pix_fmt when this option is not ...
Use Background Music.
To install, either:
brew cask install background-music
Or go to https://github.com/kyleneideck/BackgroundMusic and install the .pkg file.
Now, in Quicktime Screen Recording, you will see an option for Microphone for "Background Music". Select "Background Music". Then when you do the screen recording, it will record the System Audio.
Update: Apparently there's an improved built-in screenshot tool available in the recent versions of macOS, i.e. macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina (and as discussed in the other answers). The approach mentioned below using QuickTime Player tool works in macOS releases prior to macOS Mojave too.
Is it possible to take a screenshot of the app switcher? I'm ...
Record the whole screen video. QuickTime Player provides a screen recording function, and there are other screen recording software out there.
While it's going, perform the app switch and the rest of your procedure. Stop and save the recording. Play it back, and export frames or screenshot a paused part to grab the desired image. Make sure that it's ...
You can try the following option:
$ cd ~/Library/Containers/
$ mv com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX/ com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX.backup/
$ ln -s /Volumes/<NAME_OF_VOLUME>/com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX/ .
If the above option didn't help, then I would suggest you to:
Check the first comment on this page shared by bmike.
Here in 2020 - macOS Catalina and later allows the built-in /usr/sbin/screencapture tool has options for specifying the capture area. And if you use it graphically, it remembers the last selection so unless you change it, you can relaunch the app and get the same settings without the details below.
-R<x,y,w,h> capture screen rect
-v capture ...
I created an automator workflow to solve this problem
Bottom line: the solution allows you to save an image from the clipboard anywhere with one keystroke (you have to show it where to go in the save dialogue, obviously)
The workflow opens preview, creates a new file from the clipboard, and saves the file (opening the save as dialogue). You can then put ...
Command + Shift + 4 saves a file to the desktop, not to the clipboard.
Use Command + Control + Shift + 4 to save to the clipboard.
Take a look at this comment I wrote a few years back for the full list of keyboard shortcuts related to screenshots:
The built-in utility used by macOS to take screen shots does not support the SVG file type. It supports raster graphics, even saved as a PDF it's an encapsulated raster graphic image in a PDF document wrapper.
As an example, using https://dev.w3.org/SVG/tools/svgweb/samples/svg-files/mac.svg, here is what the contents of the file looks like:
It Has to do with the Clipboard; not Screen Capture
Screen capture can obviously support more than these two file formats; obviously it supports GIF and JPEG/JPG, but it also supports PDF. However, the issue here isn't what Screen Capture is capable of handling, it what your clipboard is capable of. Why? Well, you're going directly from your clipboard to ...
If you open /System/Applications/Utilities/Screenshot.app, you will be given the option to choose where your screenshot goes. You can select for the screenshot to automatically open in Preview.
Now anytime you use your keyboard shortcuts to take a screenshot, the default action would be to open the screenshot in Preview.
The following appears to work. I've done it twice -- once to show the shadow more explicitly, and then once to show the desired, finished output.
# adds the shadow
convert source.png \( +clone -background black -shadow 100x40+0+16 \) \
+swap -background none -layers merge +repage output.png
# adds the additional space like MacOSX
convert output.png -...
The markup editor doesn't have a control to resize screenshot. Instead you can skip clicking on the screenshot and let it get saved (which is by default on Desktop). Once it is saved, you can open it in Preview.app and use the Adjust Size... command under the Tools menu to resize it.
I don't know about the markup editor but you could open the screenshot in Preview and resize it there. Once in Preview go to the tools menu item and click on adjust size. I'm currently running High Sierra so I don't have access to the markup editor but if you can't do it in markup editor this method will work.
How do I record the iPad screen with a Netflix video playback in progress?
This is generally not a possible thing to do.
Capturing contents of the device screen by taking a screenshot or video recording is restricted programmatically in the iOS/iPadOS subsystem to curb on abusing the system.
You can neither do it while using a streaming app which provides ...
Edit/Re-Write # 2:
My earlier answers were wrong, and while troubleshooting, new (and likely better) answers have been posted. Nevertheless, I've finally got a correct answer, so I'm going to post it. I've tested it with screenshots on my 10.15.4 system, and it worked reliably in my (limited) testing. As there were already answers to this question that ...
To take a screenshot on macOS Catalina, you have 3+ options. The first is pressing Command + Shift + 3 which will screenshot the whole screen. The second Command + Shift + 4 which will allow you to select an area to screenshot. The third is pressing Command + Shift + 5 or typing "Screenshot" into Spotlight search. These will by default not open ...
Yes - after invoking commandshift5, you will see the small dialog with choices for "entire screen", "window", etc, you will also see a choice for "Options". Click that to get a pop-up selection item - that's where you'll find your individual choices for file location.
I have my doubts that mapping left click to screenshot is a great idea. It renders mouse as pointing device useless and you may end as some Vim users: "I've been using Screenshot for about 2 years now, mostly because I can't figure out how to exit it."
To set folder where screenshots are saved:
Press ⇧⌘5 or open Screenshot with Spotlight (⌘ Space; ...
Keynote on your mac is maybe a good way to make a lesson. You can make slides of your lecture and record your voice lectures with it. You can then record the whole slide show as you go through it. It has a great LaTex equation maker with all the symbols you'll need.
I hope this is what you are looking for.
