Mac users may have noticed that whenever you take a screenshot of a window on Leopard, the shadow that surrounds the window is also included. If you don’t want screen captures to include the shadow, you can set Leopard not to include it.
- Open the Terminal application.
- Type the following command, and press Enter:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool true && killall SystemUIServer
You can set it back to normal with the following command:
defaults delete com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow && killall SystemUIServer
