It depends on your platform: Windows, Unix or whatever.

On Windows, I do it via the clipboard. Hit the PrtSc key, then:

Code: Select all

convert clipboard: out.png

Ah, yes, I'd forgotten "screenshot:". It isn't mentioned on http://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php . Could someone add it to the page, please?
