Quickly create snapshots from iChat AV Apps
From the "I didn't think it would be that easy" department ... you can get a quick snapshot from your iSight or other FireWire camera using iChat AV:
  1. In your buddy list window, click your green camera icon to open the video preview window.
  2. Smile real BIG!
  3. Hit Command-C.
Your clipboard now contains a still frame of your beaming mug. Paste it into an e-mail to make friends and family giggle!

You can also drag the picture if you hold down the command key.

Apple (in their infinite ingenuity ;)) has included functionality for this right in iChat - click on your pict in the buddy list. Select the "Edit Picture..." from the dropdown menu. Choose "Take Video Snapshot" It'll even beep for you to countdown.

Very cool!
