either ctrl-alt-3 which takes a photo of you whole screen or ctrl-alt-4 which only snap shots what you want :happy:

Unlike the Windows version, the Mac version of Skype doesn't include a snapshot feature. You can use the Mac OS X built-in app "Grab" which is what other people are recommending with the key combinations (imho). It will save a fullscreen, window, or selection to a TIFF file, which you can then re-open in Preview and save it as something else if you so desire.

I also have a mac and this was my question .. Skype please make a new skype version for mac and give us the chance to take picture of our friends normally from skype and not from the mac!

also after you do CMD + Shift + 4

 

you can then press space bar.. and the crosshair will convert to a camera that will size a perfect cut for the window of your choice :wink:
