JPG (or other format) Screenshots in Tiger

By default screen shots in OS X Tiger 10.4.x are saved as .PNG files.

If you want to have the screenshot saved in some other format, you can run the two following commands in Terminal:

$ defaults write com.apple.screencapture type graphicformat
$ killall SystemUIServer
Replacing graphicformat with one of jpg, tiff, png, bmp or even pdf!
