You can find this app in the market called "Screenshot" lol....

This application require root access. I will not be covering how to root your phone in this article but you can refer to the XDA forums for more information on the subject. The Screenshot app can be downloaded from the Android Marketplace or from Koush’s website. He has a basic write up of how the program works, but I’m going to explain how I use it.

Screenshot gives you three methods of capturing a shot:

1. Use a delayed timer
2. Hold down the camera button
3. bum a hot key to the application

The timer method is difficult to get timed just right and holding down the camera button will launch the Camera app after a screenshot is taken. The hot key method works best because it allows you to take shots at a more rapid pace and at the exact moment you wish.

It is advised to bum a Hot Key to take screenshots faster...

In order to bum a hot key just browse to Settings and then Applications. You will find a Quick launch option which allows you to bum shortcuts to specific apps. I have chosen to launch Screenshot with Search + 0 and it works well for me. After the shortcut is set, you can launch the app at any time. The Screenshot app only works after it is running, so the first time you launch it you will see the insturctions menu. Just press the back key to return to whatever you were doing and then take your shot.

The other problem you will run into is the screen orientation. Most apps rotate when the keyboard is open, so I have installed Droidsans Tweak Tools in order to fix this. Now I can hold my G1 vertical and use the shortcut to take screen shots whenever I want. Sometimes the program will lag and you get a blank screen capture, but just press the back key to try again. All images are saved to the root directory of your SD card which allows easy transfer to your PC.

If you have the android SDK ddms is included which is able to capture screen shots at anytime, including your initial boot screens (T-Mobil G1) the animated boot screen, and any other times.

I took all of these (click for larger images) using the ddms utility:

I did see your site and your screenshots, do you mind adding a tutorial on how to take screenshots via ddms utility?

well the version i have in an app and to run apps you do not have to be connected to a computer.. the other way you have to be connected to a computer.
i'd say both versions have good and bad things about them.
