Here's instructions for Mac OS X.

Screenshot of whole screen:


To select part of the screen:

Capture a window:
Shift-Command-4, then press space, the cursor changes to a camera, select window with mouse.

The .PNG file will be on your desktop. The filename is "Screenshot date time" where date & time are the current date and time.

This is for the most recent version of OS X 10.7. Older versions didn't put the timestamp on, they just started at "picture 1" and then older still, they weren't in PNG format.

If you'd rather the image went in the clipboard, press control in addition to any of the above key combinations. Then paste in your favourite image editing program. If you don't have one, you could always use Preview and do File -> New from Clipboard.
