I take lots of screenshots for my blog posts or courses.
I typically use cmd-shift-4 and then I press the spacebar to screenshot the whole application window.
By default macOS adds that drop shadow which makes it look pretty nice.
If you want you can remove it using this command in the terminal:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool true ; killall SystemUIServer
Here’s the same screenshot without drop shadow:
Add it back with:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool false ; killall SystemUIServer
One more thing! ⚠️ ✋
It's a 10-weeks long cohort online course where I will guide you to becoming a Web Developer.
It's not "just a course". It's a big event I organize once a year.
At the end of the first 10 weeks you'll know how to create web sites and web applications and I'll unlock you the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp: you will get access to a large number of projects exclusive to the Bootcamp graduates, so you can follow my instructions to build things like private areas with authentication, clones of popular sites like Twitter YouTube Reddit, create e-commerce sites, and much much more.
Because once you got the fundamentals, you only learn by working on real, exciting projects.
