Screengrab to Clipboard on Mac

If you've ever taken a screengrab on a Mac with CMD + SHIFT + 4, then pasted or dragged that image into a text area such as a Github issue description, there is a better way: CMD + CTRL + SHIFT + 4. This saves your screengrab right to the clipboard, ready to paste wherever.

The same command with 3– take a screenshot instead of screengrab– also works as expected, sending the data to your clipboard.

While not a particularly ergonomic key combination, this helps me add visuals to bug reports and feature requests.
