you could use the "print screen" function on your keyboard. That's how i do it. When i get something i want on the screen i just hit the print screen button then go into Paint (under accessories) and then click on the edit button and then paste. Hope that helps.

Look in the game configuration and see what button is binded to "Print Screen", most the time it is the Print Screen button but on various games like CS etc it is F5. After that Open your Image Editor etc, and browse the game's file for the saved images, they'll be called something like Printscreen001.

just be careful of copyright protection laws if you are using the graphics on a website. some companies are pretty sensitive about their creations.
