Change Screen Capture Image Format

Ever used one of the Screen Capture Shortcuts (Command + Shift + 3 or Command + Shift + 4) and wanted to save the file as JPG or GIF instead of PNG? There's an easy Terminal edit that will allow you to change the format that Screen Capture uses.

Run Terminal, and type this command:
defaults write type image_format

Just be sure to replace "image_format" with the image file extension you want to use.
