Moving/Resizing a Screenshot Selection Area

Cult of Mac reports: [edited]

Most Macintosh users know that hitting Command-Shift-3 will take a picture of the Mac's screen.

Some know that Command-Shift-4 reveals a crosshair which you can use to select a specific area.

Not very many know that once you’ve hit Command-Shift-4 and selected your area for a screenshot, that if you hold the Space bar down while continuing to hold the click, you can move your mouse cursor around and the selected area will move with it.

If you don’t let go of the mouse button, and release the Space bar, you can even continue to resize the selection area. Once you’ve moved everything around to the right area, let go of the mouse button, and the screenshot will be deposited on your desktop.
