Free screenshot programs?

So, related to my latest post in stormfeather_vg, anyone know of a decent free screenshot program?

I'm not totally happy with the in-game screenshot function for Sims 3, but at the same time I'm not unhappy enough with it (and it's not a big enough part of my life) that I want to run out and get snazzy screenshot software with, y'know, an actual cost.

So does anyone know/use any programs that are fairly decent, and sharp, and free?

The golden standard for free capture, both screenshot and video, is FRAPS. It's actually crippleware, in that there are extra features unlocked on registration, but for the most part the free version should fit your needs.

Thanks... I had some trouble with the function keys, getting the right one set up so it'd take screenshots without interrupting any other function (or rather, without another function overriding the screenshots), but I think I've got it now. Woot!

PRTSCRN. It dumps a screen shot to you buffer, which you can then paste into your favorite graphics program via CTRL-V.
