How to change the default screenshot format on Mac OSX

By default your Mac captures the screenshot as a PNG file.

If you would like to change the PNG to a JPG format follow the simple steps bellow:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Write: defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg
  3. Write: killall SystemUIServer (for the changes to take effect)
  4. Done!

Your Mac now captures the screen in jpg format.

PS: you can use a different format instead of “jpg”. Works with tiff, pdf, etc.
