Grab

Grab is an application that can capture screen shots of Mac OS X and its applications. You tell Grab to capture what appears on your screen (or on a portion of it) and it creates a TIFF file. You can then view the TIFF file with Preview or any software package capable of opening TIFFs.

Tips

  • You might find screen shots useful for documenting software—or for writing books like this one!

  • Although Grab is a useful—and free—screen shot utility, it isn’t the best available for Mac OS X. Snapz Pro X, a shareware program from Ambrosia Software, is a far better option. If you take a lot of screen shots, be sure to check out this program at www.ambrosiasw.com.
