Screen capture to clipboard

Another bloody kb combo to learn:
Apple - Pro - Tips - The Secret Screen Capture Shortcut

...Okay, you probably already know the ol’ Command-Shift-3 shortcut for taking a screen capture of your entire screen, and you may even know about Command-Shift-4, which gives you a crosshair cursor so you can choose which area of the screen you want to capture. But perhaps the coolest, most-secret hidden capture shortcut is Control-Command-Shift-3 (or 4), which, instead of creating a file on your desktop, copies the capture into your Clipboard memory, so you can paste it where you want.
It works.

shift-cntl-cmd-4 does seem a little obtuse, but once you know it, you'll be amazed at how often you use it.
