Copernicus is a solid screen capture tool which allows you to capture parts or your whole screen. You can also record small videos. Copernicus lets you set the frame rate and decide whether to rely on memory or hard drive.

I like how Copernicus includes a preview interface for batch handling your different screen grabs. When saving you'll notice you can adjust the quality of the image, however you won't be able to change the format from JPG.

I didn't really like how Copernicus worked with F keys, which I don't find the most comfortable to work with on a Mac. However other users might find them very handy for controlling the program.

Copernicus doesn't just take screenshots, it's a virtual photo gallery too. Take as many pictures as you like, then save them one at a time or all at once.
