Hi.

In the menu bar, there is a option called Actions and inside this you have one to capture screen. It gives you a preview of the captured screen and lets you save directly as a jpg.

In my pc (gentoo linux with gnome 1.4.2-r1) the options Alt+Print Screen and Print Screen, also works, giving me the same option to save the image in a file.
