Copy screenshots directly to the clipboard

Today, the productivy.so newsletter hit my inbox, and I learned something convenient for dealing with screenshots in macOS.
I use the screenshot functionality very often to include images in Keynote using
SHIFT + ⌘ + 4. When you use this shortcode, macOS will create a new file in your screenshot directory. This action leads to hundreds of files that were only used once.
It turns out that you can use
SHIFT + ⌘ + CTRL + 4 to not create a file but place the screenshot in your clipboard instead! 😲 The same behavior applies to full page or window screenshots. Great finding! 👏🏻
