tputs screen captures in .PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format if you did not include ‘Control’. If you prefer JPG, GIF, TIFF over the default .PNG, here’ how you can it manually.Launch Mac’s Terminal and insert these 2 commands.

  1. defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg
  2. killall SystemUIServer
