O macOS Mojave It has been between us for almost two months and, among its many new features, one may have gone unnoticed for most users: a tool for screenshots totally revamped, full of options and inspired by previously adopted iOS solutions.
Here's how the new operating system version lets you lie down and roll with the infamous screenshots or even with the video captures of what you are doing.
Firstly, it is worth noting that the existing screen capture commands remain unchanged:
- 3: Captures the full screen and saves the image to the Table.
- 3: Captures the entire screen and places the image in the transfer area.
- 4: Allows you to click and drag the portion of the screen you want to capture and save the image to the Table; By pressing the spacebar after the commands, it is possible to capture an active window on the desktop.
- 4: Allows you to click and drag the portion of the screen you want to capture and place the image in the transfer area; By pressing the spacebar after the commands, it is possible to capture an active window on the desktop.
- 6: Exclusive to Touch Bar MacBooks Pro, captures what is displayed on the bar and saves the image to the Desktop.
The big news is in the new command 5. It opens a small window with five main buttons; the left three make static catches and precisely cover the actions described above you can respectively capture the entire screen, capture a specific window or capture a selected part of the screen.
Here, it is worth exploring the menu "Options", right. Here you can select the folder where your captures will be saved, set whether the mouse pointer will be displayed or not. screenshotYou can set a timer before the capture is taken or select whether or not you want a capture preview to be displayed in the lower right corner of the screen.
If this preview option is enabled, when capturing you can either dismiss it (simply dragging it to the right), which automatically saves it to the selected folder, or click it to make quick adjustments or annotations by Quick look In yourself, you can even share your work directly through iMessage, AirDrop, or other selected services.
Moving to both options of video captureThey are also quite self-explanatory: the first captures the entire screen, while the second captures only the portion you select. In either case, you must click the desired button and then the ?Capture? button; to end the recording, just click the button Stop in the menu bar. By default, a video preview will be displayed in the lower right corner of the screen; then it be saved to your table.
Again, it is a good idea to explore capture options to enhance your videos. By clicking on the ?Options? button after selecting the video capture, you can choose the clip's audio input (it may be none, the Mac's built-in microphone or an external accessory), select whether the capture displays mouse clicks and set a timer to start recording.
By clicking on the video preview after its completion, you can cut it in Quick look or share it on iMessage, AirDrop, and other selected services.
