I know the site says if you want to save your comic, you have to take a picture of your page to save it. How do you do that? What is the keystroke? And is there another way?

 I think this site is so cool and would like to take full advantage of my creativity.

 HELP  :)

If you donate you can save your comics as .png's to share with everyone through your blog or whatever else you wanna do.

That's certainly the easiest way.

Another way is to be sure that your comic is in the middle of your screen. Then you want to hold control and press the button that says "Print screen" (or perhaps a shortened version such as "Prt Scr"). This will copy the image of whatever is currently on your screen to your clipboard. The way I understand it, Mac users have a different way to do this, so if you have a mac, consult another mac user. Once you have the image copied, open MS paint. At the top, go to the "Edit" tab, then to paste.

You should then see the screen you previously saved. Next you'll want to crop the image until only the comic is on the screen. Then you can save it so that you can post it other places on the internet.

It's a lot of work, but hopefully it serves your purposes.

Chicka's way is the easiest, though you don't need to press control when you hit print screen, and if you open paint just hold control and hit 'v' to paste it in. To crop just drag the bottom right corner of the canvas (the bit that now looks like the screen you copied) up to the bottom right of the comic, then flip it (ctrl+r, r, 1, enter) crop the other corner, and flip it back.

If you have Microsoft's OneNote program, you can use its Clip function to grab the toon as a graphics file as well.

I've been holding control for the last ten years. All that time of left hand freedom... lost.

I don't know if holding Control with Print Screen does anything, but Alt + Print Screen will capture just the active window - useful if you have several windows onscreen at once. But crabby's right, you should donate anyway. It helps keep the site going and lets you do other stuff in addition to saving comics.
