Not at all, and it might be of use to other mac users out there! First try saving the pic as a .jpg, i.e. open it, then go to File / Save As and choose .jpg from the drop down.

For the future, you might want to consider changing your OSX default screen cap file format. To do that, go to Applications / Utilities / Terminal and type in (depending on the file format you want):

defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg
defaults write com.apple.screencapture type png
defaults write com.apple.screencapture type pdf
defaults write com.apple.screencapture type tif

Quit Terminal and restart your computer.

My motto is, if in doubt, do an internet search first! Just now I googled "change default screen cap file format mac os x" and found useful info here and here. Good luck!
