We'll run through the different key combinations and the various refinements you can make to screenshots so that, for example, you can crop them to a particular size, or take a screen grab of an area that is bigger than your screen.

CleanShot X is unbeatable here. The app is tailored for 50+ different changes, which makes it the ultimate screen capturing tool for Mac. You can use CleanShot X to capture screen — whether it’s a window, full screen, area, or even scrolling content, as well as record video and GIFs. While capturing anything on your desktop, you can choose to hide all desktop clutter and disable desktop notifications. Once you have your clean screenshot, open it from the overlay window that pops up, and start editing. You can add annotations, blur specific parts, or draw — CleanShot X will help you customize virtually anything. If your Mac has a Touch Bar, you can create a button that will do nothing but take screenshots. This is done by going to System Preferences, clicking on Keyboard and selecting Customize Control Strip. There, you can pick the location of the screenshot button and save the changes. Now, you'll have a dedicated button just for screenshots. (Source: www.marca.com)
