Grab from Preview in Tiger

February 5, 2006

Grab is a very popular application used to take screenshots, and includes very cool settings like “Timed Screen”. But it seemed awkward to have to go all the way through the utilities to find Grab, and another downside is that you could see Grab icon in the dock in your screenshot.

Preview Screen Capture

Now, you can take screenshots from Preview, using Grab’s 3 different options:

  • Selection
  • Window
  • Timed Screen

To take a screenshot in Preview, just:

  • Go to File menu
  • Then go to Grab
  • Choose which type of screenshot you want

Now, just use Preview to take screenshots, and then you don’t have to look at Grab’s dock icon in the screenshot.
