    I found raspi2png easy to compile and use. You can get the source code and instructions how to compile at the link below:

    To use, make raspi2png the working directory and type the command raspi2png. You can add a –delay parameter that will delay the snapshot for a specified number of seconds. The best thing about raspi2png is that I can use it over SSH.

    Though I’ve not used it, an alternative is scrot. You can find a tutorial at the link below:
