    Screen shot apps generally require rooting.

    Check out This Thread tcat007 says Screen Capture Shortcut works on the SGP

    Other threads you might want to check out:
    http://androidforums.com/samsung-mesmerize/315638-screenshots.html several people talk about pressing Back+Power on a Samsung Mesmerize (but it looks like a Galaxy Tab may not support it so the SGP may not either)
    Also, dixie_boysles states that "ShootMe" works without rooting, but again this is on a Mesmerize

    Long-winded suggestions
    http://androidforums.com/samsung-admire/463688-how-take-screenshot.html DealerMan suggests going down the SDK route and taking snapsots while connected via USB, while ethood1999 suggests using "No Root Screenshot It" which requires a desktop app to set it up via USB but after that can make screenshots without being connected

    As I don't yet own an SGP, I haven't been able to try any of these myself tcat007 hasn't said anything about the Back+Power idea but I'd try that first.

    Screen Capture Shortcut Free
    You pull down the notification "curtain" and there's the Screen Capture "activator" . It will take screen shots from any app that lets you get to the notification bar. NetFlix, for example, won't.
    The paid version (or Donate Version)- as they call it) will let you trigger the capture via "shake". Files get saved to a folder on the internal memory called Screen Capture

    AirDroid is also a posible solution.

    Just found out the button combination :)

    Press the Home and Back buttons simultaneously and the screen capture will go into a folder called ScreenCapture (same as screen Capture Shortcut). You get the camera shutter sound and a message at the bottom of the screen so you know it's been made.
