That's weird, i don't have that Phil. It's not pre-installed for me and can't find it in the appstore.  :-\

Are you using the Mojave operating system, it might not be on that?

OMG cmd+shift+5 !!

No wonder i didn't find it as an app in the utility folder. Because it's a system-wide feature. Thank you so much, Phil.

some info, easist is to get "Grab" back from a backup, time machine or from any pre-mojave running machine via "copy > paste" "drag and drop etc. etc.

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/best-gif-apps-mac/

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gifgrabber/id668208984?mt=12

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gif-brewery-by-gfycat/id1081413713?mt=12

Restore Grab from a previous macOS Time Machine backup, if available
Open Time Machine or open your backup drive’s backups.backupdb folder
If using Time Machine, go to a past snapshot from a previous macOS version like High Sierra or Sierra
If opening your backup folder, select a backup date before you updated to macOS Mojave
Locate Grab in the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder of your backup
If using Time Machine, command-click on Grab and select Restore “Grab” to… and choose your Applications > Utilities folder as the folder for the restored item
Enter your admin password, if asked
If searching your backup drive without Time Machine, locate Grab and paste it in your Mac > Applications > Utilities folder
Once complete, verify that Grab is on your Mac running macOS Mojave in the Applications > Utilities folder, open it, and conduct a test screenshot using Grab
You can also copy it from another person’s Mac running macOS Sierra or High Sierra or from their Time Machine or another backup macOS Sierra or High Sierra.

if someone wants/needs that we find ways how you can get one from me, i have 1 of 4 macs running on high sierra and can post a dropbox link here:

Via the link below you should be able to download "Grab" from my dropbox

That's awesome Magnamentis. Thank you!

glad to see that one of the methods worked for you ;) :D

BTW as a little side note:

"Grab" is 64bit hence chances are high that it will work for many years to come

Generally one can find a lot of "hidden" stuff under shortcuts and accessibility in system prefs
and last but not least one can easily create own shortcuts for often used functions.

Hey JayW,

thanks for posting in this thread. I'm having a favour to ask though.

Could you make the GIFs 1 pixel wider please (701px)? Since this thread is dedicated for GIFs it's a burden to even open for users with bandwidth cap or slow internet if GIFs would all autoplay and therefore auto-download. Also, the forums servers will have to work less when this thread does not force a download of multiple GIFs just by opening it.

Hope this makes sense to you. It took me some time to wrap my head around it. ;)

Nice animation. If the ice is thick it doesn't have a lot of integrity. That must be warm water upwelling along the coast. Probably been bottom melting for a while.
maybe rotate 90deg and post on melting thread?

My thought exactly! I had this suspicion back in March April too when the first NS east side cracking occurred.

This is followup GIF showing the extreme crackification at the most northern Greenland coast, rotated.

Note that this crack is now reaching west all the way to the Beaufort Sea cutting through all the supposed thick ice. The sea ice has completely lost its anchor. It's drifting and cracking all over the place.

This GIF is showing an interesting S-curvy pattern the floes take in hight of Hall Basin in Nares Strait.

In the upper part of the GIF, you can see an up and down movement caused by a tidal wave. The S-curve stays persistent.

Sentinel also clearly shows this 'track'.

Okay, instead of clogging up the melting thread with my speculative post, this fits well here.  I was perusing the arctic using band M8 ("snow/cloud"), and was struck by some features on the Pacific side, these also show up in the two "snow/ice" bands. As an aside, the "I" bands are 375m resulting, "M" bands are 750m.  They are clearly features of the ice, not atmospheric, but I'm not willing to go as far as saying it is wetness, as much as I'm tempted.  The satellite definitely "sees" something, but I can't discern if it's a roughness thing, a temperature thing, or a wetness thing, or even a combination.  I've reattached the NPP satellites a bit, but haven't gained clarity.  Incidentally, the area that uniquorn referenced at 85.3N, 96.5E shows as a dark spot. (Third attachment, still image)

First attachment is north of the Chukchi. (Click it)

I noticed the same with the other dark spots too.

Could it caused by rain?

That's kinda my thinking as well, although I think that the dark is wet snow, not quite liquid water. 

The pressure from the Beaufort ice getting shoved westward by the winds must've piled the ice up somewhere.  As the pressure ridges rose up, the extra weight then lowered the troughs between ridges, allowing see water to saturate the snow.



I noticed the same with the other dark spots too.

Could it caused by rain?

I'm coming around to the idea that the dark areas in band M8 are representing wet snow, and whiter areas are drier/colder snow.  I think in many of these cases, we are seeing the snowpack "ripen", meaning that it has softened to the piont it's melting so that it's surface is wet, but it's still very white, as the water can't pool on the surface yet.  That's why everything looks white in the visible bands, but picked up by the near infrared bands and displays as darker.

Today's interesting area of darkening is SE of Wrangel Island.  Here we see a storm passing through, but offering is a window through the dry slot.  A close look reveals some white bands that follow the cyclonic curvature of the storm. My interpretation is that the majority of precipitation that fell was a mixture of rain and snow, this wet down the snow (dark patches).  The whiter arcs are areas where the the precipitation came down hard enough that it was able to stay snow.  This is very common for storms where the temperatures are neat 0°C, the heavier stuff creates more cooling in the column and can drag down enough cold to keep it snow.

There's some similar patterns emerging in the Kara Sea this morning, but waiting for a few more images to load for that area.

Edit: added the Bremen cause color, as it picked up on the "torching" in the Chukchi where I feel the rain/snow mixture fell.

Here's the area in the Kara Sea where more darkening in band M8 is evident.  I hypothesize that the thin, low clouds produced drizzle (liquid), wetting the snow, where the thicker clouds were able to generate higher precipitation rates, and thus snow, leaving behind the white streaks.

It looks like the white streaks are also slowly disappearing which would suggest fresh new snow from the passing storm is also starting to melt/darken/get wet. Do we have surface temperatures from the area?

New snow kills the old, as the saying goes.

ESS showing some dark as the clouds pass in band M8.  A curious little low level circulation riding along 75°N, likely along some low level boundary also seen.
I remember seeing little cyclonic features like that in 2013...14?

There was some discussion but no conclusions.

I suspect they are fairly common, but exist in the lowest part of the atmosphere along frontal boundaries.  Since they are so low, higher clouds likely obscure them normally.

Speaking of swirls, some neat, fractal-like ones in the Greenland sea today.

Amazing animation.
So does the dark color represent wet surface or warmed surface?

I believe band M8 is considered to be in the near infrared spectrum, so it's possible that's is sensitive to surface temperatures, but as it is called the "cloud/snow" band, it's also possible is picking up on some property of wet snow.  Maybe some of both.  My hunch is that it's the snowpack "ripening", right at the threshold of melting.  So perhaps it's sensitive to temps near 0°C, or dampness, but I can't say for certain.  Only thing that I'm sure of, is that's is picking up on something.   :)  sorry I can't be more informative..
