If you download and use the free utility called TinkerTool (currently v3.61):

   http://www.bresink.com/osx/TinkerTool.html

you can change the screen capture format to any 
of PNG, PDF, TIFF, PICT, JPEG-JFIF, JPEG-2000, 
BMP, GIF, PSD, SGi, TGA!  So you can have almost 
any flavour of graphic file from an OS X 10.4 
screen grab.

Alternatively, you can use variants of the normal 
screen grab shift+cmd+3 and selection grab 
shift+cmd+4 to put the grabbed info into the 
clipboard instead of creating a new file.  The 
variants are ctrl+shift+cmd+3 and ctrl+ 
shift+cmd+4.  I often use these variants to grab 
into the clipboard and then paste into 
GraphicConverter:

where I can do further manipulation and then save 
in any of an enormous number of different graphic 
file formats.

Cheers
