I've just released retro2png; a utility to take snapshots of the Raspberry Pi screen using gamepad, mouse and/or keyboard hotkeys in RetroPie, Sneses/Blast16, X11, ssh, the command line, in most running games and apps etc.:
retro2png is a fork of the pioneering and much better known raspi2png from @AndrewFromMelbourne, with the following new modifications/features that I found useful on my RetroPie setup:
-Automated install scripts for Raspbian/RetroPie and Blast16/Sneses etc. which includes and sets up Triggerhappy hotkeys
-Saves default to the "~/Pictures" folder
-Triggered by keyboard, mouse and/or game controller hotkey combinations, as well as from the command line/ssh
-Up to 99 auto-incremented standard "retro2png_X.png" file names in all specified save folders
-Save folder easily specified anywhere behind the retro2png command without need of flags, or together with other flags
-Keyboard, mouse and/or game controller hotkeys are fully and easily configurable, works from most applications and user interfaces and can be used inside RetroPie/games for other functionality/apps than just retro2png screenshots
I hope this utility can be useful for some of you as well! ;-)

Thanks, these are just the features that I missed in raspi2png, especially the incremental file naming.
