Change the format of OSX Screenshots

How to change the format of OSX Screenshot files.

I prefer my OSX screenshots to be saved as JPG images, rather than PNG or whatever else it seems to come set at. Fortunately, it’s very easy to do. Fire up terminal, and use this command:

defaults write type jpg

Then, to make it take effect, you need to run this:

killall SystemUIServer

All your screenshot files will now be in JPG format. Awesome.
