    Command-Shift-3 = Full screen.

    Command-Shift-4 = Hold mouse down and selected area.

    I'm confused as to where to use this and what is the primary importance. Once I take the shot how do I insert it? Thanks.

    You can take screenshots to post in forums like this one. You need a server to put the photos on though. I use an app called GrabUp. As soon as I take a screenshot, it uploads it to my server to display right away.

    Read this article on it.

    This feature can also come in handy if you want to capture a picture in a flash based website. I use the shiftcmd4 all the time. You can set it up so that these screenshots are saved as a JPEG files like any picture file - the default format is .png file which is not as user friendly. There is a way to change it to JPEG. I did this but can't remember how - I followed the instruction on how to do it on another forum.
