By default, all screenshots on the Mac are saved in PNG format.
PNG files crisp and clear but are too huge for websites and blogs.
There is a way to convert them to JPG formats with smaller file size.
Just open the image, then export it as JPG.
Is there a faster way?
Can we just do a screenshot straight into JPG?
- Open Terminal
- Type in – defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg; killall SystemUIServer
- Press Return
Now all screenshots are in lightweight JPG formats.
By the way, my favourite screenshot keyboard shortcut is Shift-Command-4.
