I've tried using print screen, but it seems to grab the window behind Diablo rather than the game. Is there some in-game hotkey to take a screenshot, or some other method that will work?
Hit Print Screen. The screenshots are automatically saved as JPGs in your
[User]\Documents\Diablo III\Screenshots folder. You can rebind this shortcut in settings as LessPop and Augustus note.
You do not need to paste an image into a graphics program (e.g. Paint) and save that, if you do, you will get nothing/garbage as you note.

You can also change the key in the games settings. I have it bound to backslash because laptop keyboard. May 15, 2012 at 18:46

Mac Users can use Command ⌘ + Shift + 3. It will save to your desktop as a .png file named with the current date and time.
Are you in windowed mode and something may be interfering? The proper way of taking a screenshot in Diablo III is the Print Screen button, which I've used successfully already.
I'm using fullscreen mode. I tried both just hitting Print Screen, and Ctrl+Print Screen, but they both just gave me the browser that was also running at the time.– bwarnerMay 15, 2012 at 18:12
You may want to check your key bindings in the options mine wasn't set for some reason.
There's always Fraps. The free version only takes BMP though.
