Hi ! Happy new year :)
If you mean the snapshots from the projects themselves we use After-Effects.
Press Ctrl+Alt+S Inside the composition you wanna “snap” and an frame you were on is gonna be added to the render queue.

If you mean the video tutorials – I use SnagIt, and there’s another popular program called Fraps.

It depends on your machine type, but for screen shots where I need to work it into something I generally stick with the built-in OS ones. Alt+Print Screen for PC and CMD+Shift+4 I believe for Mac.

there is a STAMP key on my keyboard,

I just press that.

But then I need to open Photoshop, make new document and then paste the screenshot.

I usually just grab my iPhone, take a snap of my screen then email it to myself for screenshots. I assume that’s how everyone else does it? :sarcasm:
