  Or screen-grab them somehow. In Windows: hit 'Print Scrn' - or is it shift-Print Scrn - then open a graphics program (Photoshop) and create a new picture and then 'Paste' it in. That'll give you the whole screen, so crop to size and save. There are other screen grabber utilities available.

  On Linux, I'd run Gimp and then capture the graphics window with the 'Acquire... Screen Shot' function. Save as required.
