Selective Screen Capture on a Mac

Press Command Shift 4 on the keyboard.  The cursor turns into a cross-hairs icon.  Now you can click and drag the mouse over just the part of the screen you want to capture.  When you let go of the mouse button you’ll hear a snapshot sound.  

This creates a picture file on your desktop called Picture 1, Picture 2, etc.  One file for each snapshot you take.
