Screenshot in System 1 to 7

Hello,
I have a lot of old Macintosh games for my Macintosh 128ks and my SE/30 and I would like to upload them. But I have a question. I also want to add screenshots but I cannot find out how to take a screenshot in the old systems.
Is there also a keystroke in System 1 to 7 for it or which program can I use?
I do not use an emulator on my iMac with Mac Os X. I always use my old Macs for the games.
Thank you for your help.

Command+Shift+3 takes a snapshot of the entire screen. A PICT file will be created on your boot drive. This works in System 2.0 and MacOS 8.1, and likely all the versions in between.

Thank you for the quick reply. I searched forever for this tip and I am going to try it out this weekend.

Command-Shift-3 even works in OS X, by the way.

Oddly enough: I can´t make the emulated system in SheepShaver take the Com+Shift+3 or Com+Shift+4. I get the screendump or part of the screen from my host system, in this case OS X. Oh well, as long as I get the pic I want.

@SwedeBear:

Are you sure you're using the command key? It may be different in SheepShaver ...

Whenever I want to take a Com+Shift+3 screenshot of SheepShaver (in windowed mode), it snaps the title bar only. Com+Shift+4 solves this one.

Whenever I want to take a Com+Shift+3 screenshot in Basilisk II (in full screen mode, but the window mode doesn't work correctly at all), all I get is a black filled pict.
