All Mac keyboard shortcuts will suffice if you need to grab just the visible part of your screen.
Hold down the ⌘-Shift-3 buttons. This will record your entire screen as a screenshot.
To screenshot an area of your Mac screen hold down the ⌘-Shift-4 buttons, and your pointer will turn into crosshairs. Move this crosshair over any area that you want to screenshot.
Most Mac devices also make it possible to take a screenshot of a visible part of window, e.g. the files in your Desktop, just hold down ⌘-Shift-4 followed by the Space.
When you take a screenshot on a Mac with keyboard shortcuts, the image is automatically saved to your desktop as a .PNG file with the time and date stamp for when the image was taken as the file name. You can later convert into other image formats, such as a JPEG/JPGs, GIFs, etc.
Now you can use your Mac's Preview app to crop, resize, rotate, and add some text and arrows. It offers basic tools for editing images.
