Take screenshots in Mac OS X Lion

Two ways to take screenshots in Lion

Here are two different ways to easily take screenshots in Mac OS X Lion.

1. Open the Preview application.

2. Go to the File menu and then select Take Screenshot.

3. You get three options to choose from:

Selection Window Entire Screen

If you prefer you can simply use keyboard shortcuts to take the screenshots and skip Preview altogether. This is the way I prefer to do it.
