To take a snapshot, perform the following steps:

  1. set your timeline insert marker where you want the snapshot – this frame shows in the compositor
  2. right click in an empty spot in the media folder and the popup shows snapshot as the 5th item down
  3. highlight that and the submenu comes up allowing you to choose png, jpg, ppm or tiff

The snapshot shows up in the Media folder. It is saved by default in /tmp as

snap_date-time.ext BUT you can change the default directory path in Settings Preferences Interface tab in the right hand side of the Editing section.

Grabshot is the 6th menu item. A red circle reticle can be moved to the area to grab; use left mouse drag to surround an area; and right click to grab.
