screenshot file formats

Can I change my snapshot feature to save snapshots to jpg files? It now is saving to png and my Photoshop Elements program doesn't import them to the organizer.

Thanks

One more, for the road!
In Mac OS X 10.4 and later, the default screenshot format can be changed, by opening Terminal (located at /Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and typing in:

defaults write com.apple.screencapture type image_format
killall SystemUIServer

Where image_format is one of jpg, tiff, pdf, png, bmp or pict (among others). If you omit the second line, you will need to log out and in again for the change to take effect.
