    Command shift 3 does an entire screenshot.

    Command shift 4 allows you to select the area for the screen shot capture.

    Hold down shift+command+4 this will turn your curser into a cross hair with coordinates next to it.  This allows to a capture of a specific part of the screen.  Move the cross hair to a location on the screen, while pressing down on the touch pad (i.e. click the button) drag the cross hair over the area you want to capture (it will be highlighted in a gray color.  When you let go of the button it takes a screen capture of the area you highlighted and saves it to the desktop.
