    Shift + Command (Open Apple) + 3 will take a screen shot.

    Shift + Command + 4 will turn your mouse into a crosshair thingy; from there you can select and take a picture of your selection.

    Shift + ALT + Command + 4 will not do anything.

    That's weird...When I did it a while ago it disabled my dock and expose corners and I couldn't exit windows...I had to restart my Mac!
