    In CS:S I just use FRAPS or "Control - Print Screen". I don't know if this could help. Also in full screen some games will show as black for screen shots. I would just use windowed mode and cut the picture so that the start menu is not showing.

    1 In game.

    2 Press the button that's in green. (For me is "Impr")

    3 Go to Gimp\Photoshop\etcetera and press Ctrl + v.

    4 Save it and you are done.

    Edit: It will work on gimp +90%

    The print screen won't work for some games including cs 1.6
    To take a screenshot, start the game and press f5. Now go to your cstrike folder and a bmp by the name of your map which you were playing at that time will be there.
