When taking a screenshot in Mac OS X Lion, I've noticed the shadows appear to be a lot larger than in Snow Leopard. Perhaps they just fade more gradually and this takes up more space. Whatever the case it is a bit annoying.
I've found a bit of code (below) that allows one to disable shadows from being captured in OS X Lion's screenshots by default:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool true killall SystemUIServer
But I sort of like the shadows, just not "that much" of them. Is there a way to decrease the shadows without turning them off completely?
