Screen Grab with Mac Q

To do section screen grab on my macbook pro with osx I am doing command-shift--4.  But when I do this it sends a copy of the grab to the desktop but not into my copy buffer.  I would prefer nothing go to the desktop, that the images go to another defined folder and that the image I just grabbed goes to the copy buffer so I can paste it into an email or document straight away.  How can I modify this behavior?  Thanks.

Here are all of the screenshot commands... http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/screencapturemac/ht/macscreenshot.htm

Cmd + Ctrl + Shift + 3 will save the screen to your clipboard.

Another option is to use the Grab utility...

Looks like cmd-ctrl-shift-4 gave me the partial grab directly to clip board.  Perfect.  I will look into the grab utility too as I rely on grabs professionally.
