How to Invert Screen
Go to Applications.
Find Utilities.
Locate Grab in the list. It will look like a piece of paper and scissors.

Where as this program is more complicated to get to than simply pressing a single key on the keyboard, it is actually kind of neat because you have four different options in which you can capture the screen.

Window
This will capture the whole window you are currently wanting to capture, rather than the entire area of the screen.

Screen
This will capture anything that is visible on the entire screen.

Timed Screen
Just like a timed camera, this will allow you to have a delay between the capture so that you may move or change things to how you wish for them to be.

Selection
This to me is handy. This will allow you to select an area by itself to capture. So if you would like to only capture the game, rather than the entire window or screen, you may do so.

In order to take these screen shots while your Grab program is open, go to Capture and select one of the four menus. It will then ask you to select the window/area you would like to capture and click Choose Window. Once you've chosen, click one more time to take the actual capture.

NEW - Shortcut: Thanks to drum254, you may also press Command (the button beside the spacebar) + shift + 3 to take a screen shot without having to find your grab program. This will store the picture # under your documents.

Now the only problem with this is you still need a paint program of some sort in order to paint or invert the colors. Any image that you capture will automatically be opened up in its own file. Simply Save As and load the image into your paint program to edit in which ever way you need. If you do not have a paint program, see the sticky titled "Click here if you don't have a paint program or something". I'll be honest, I don't actually know if there is a MAC version of the Pixia program I listed as an example. If there is not, it's not very difficult to do a google search and find a free program.

hit "ctrl option apple 8" all together to invert the screen.

Use GraphicConverter on your mac. Under 'Picture' you can find 'invert'. Click it and take the first option. It should invert the image completely.

Apple + Shift + 4: With this shortcut you can take print of a selection of your screen. You mouse chances to a tiny cross with which you have to select whatever you need printed. You can find the image on your desktop.

Apple + Shift + 3: With this one you take a complete print screen. You can find the image on your desktop as well.

To invert colors quickly, press control+option+apple+8 which will automatically invert the colors of the screen.

Since usually a Mac computer's mouse only has one button, to right click just click the mouse while holding down the "control" button.

To take a picture of a screen, press apple+shift+4, then just drag your mouse to show what section of the screen to take a picture of. The picture should then appear on your desktop within a few seconds. To take a picture of the entire screen, press the spacebar after pressing apple+shift+4.

Below I have included two images to show the differences between a MAC keyboard and a Windows keyboard. This can help you MAC users throughout the game from time to time.
