Calling all Mac users: Help!

  1. Hi everyone,
    I'm writing my first lesson plan (going to be a teacher!!!) & I wanted to include screen shots of an instructional dvd. I've seen others post this sort of thing on here but I'm pretty new to the Macbook & haven't been able to figure it out. Can anyone give me some pointers? TIA:heart::heart::heart:
  2. To do a screenshot of the whole screen press Apple & Shift & 3

    To do a screenshot of a section of the screen press Apple & Shift & 4, then click and drag when the icon appears :yes:

    The pictures will appear on your desktop
  3. Thanks so much! I just did a screen shot of this page & it worked! :yahoo:
    Can't wait to try it on the volcano dvd that I'm going to use for the lesson plan.
  4. from what i remember screenshots are disabled in the apple dvd player for copyright reasons, so you'd probably need to use vlc or some other application to play the dvd and be able take screenshots.
  5. ooh thanks! I didn't know that and I've used a mac for almost 2 years now!
  6. Thank you for posting the link to vlc. I was able to successfully use it!
    Once again:
