The best "screen-grab" program out is TechSmith's Snag-It. I use it every day in my full-time job, as well as on here and every where else for that matter. The newer version is loaded with new features. I suggest checking it out. It's worth paying for.

You can also download a trial if you would like to see it in action.

Greenshot works really well, and is easy to use.

Plus its free.

CNET's Download.com really likes Gadwin PrintScreen.

Is free, and is recommended in their Window's starter kit collection. Good ratings.

I have never really used any programs for this before, but with the newest version of Firefox, I got the 'Awesome Screenshot' add-on. I am not particularly fond of the name, but I like it for the simple fact that It will get the entire page (if I want), and not just the visible area.

I use something called Jing. The free version works fine for images (for my purposes), but for video it seems to require Internet Explorer to open it.

Fraps is pretty good, although that's for capturing screen video. I don't know if it's free, if not thepiratebay is good for that

Do you have Windows 7? If so use the snipping tool on the start menu. It works great.

For payware, Snag-it, as already mentioned, is tops.
For freeware, Picpick is excellent, as already mentioned.
If you're a Firefox user, Screengrab is a good add-on.

In Windows 7, look under "Accessories" for the snipping tool.

ETA: filehippo.com is a good clean site to get picpick from, as well as other proggies.

I saw a Print Screen suggestion above, its the key to the left of scroll lock. Press that button when your screen is displaying what you want to capture, then open paint / photoshop, some sort of image editing software and press ctrl+v (paste) and your screen will be pasted to the canvas.

Snipping tool is also good

under the start menu there is the "snipping tool". Click on that and when the little box pops up click new and then select whatever it is that you want to capture and it will automatically save it as an image file.
