The easiest way is to simply press Shift+PrtSc on your keyboard (however depending on how your keyboard is set-up it may be a different combination) of the image you want to capture, then go into another program such as MSPaint and paste the image, finally save the image and that's it.

There are many extra programs that you can install to make the process easier, and I'm sure that other members can help you with that.

I use FScreen,put the icon on your desktop,and double click it before you load FS.Press 'Print Screen' every time you need it,and it saves it as a bitmap on the desktop.

I use a program called Snapshooter which is on AVSIM. It can be configured to save screenshots to a specific directory in the format that you want (BMP/GIF/JPG/PNG and so on) and in the resolution that you want.
