Two things I like are:

  • The Command + Shift + 4 shortcut for taking screenshots (OS X).
  • The world wide web

So why not combine the two? This mini-project turns the screen capture utility on OS X into a lean, mean image uploading machine.


  1. sudo mv /usr/sbin/screencapture /usr/sbin/screencapture-bin
  2. sudo sh -c 'curl > /usr/sbin/screencapture'
  3. sudo chmod +x /usr/sbin/screencapture


  1. sudo mv /usr/sbin/screencapture-bin /usr/sbin/screencapture
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
