Or you could just look in the menu. It says right next to "Screen Shot" that the key for Portal 2's built in screen shots is F5.

Press the F12 key on your keyboard. This will activate the screenshot function of Steam.

F12 is the default key for steam. Although you can press the Print Screen key and then paste the image into paint or something.

Another alternative is to use FRAPS. You can even take videos of your gameplay.

Pressing F12 while playing any game in Steam will take a quick screenshot. I suppose you could also use the old method of Print Screen and then pasting into Paint.

To make a screenshot in Portal 2 you have to press F12 on your keyboard or the key you assigned it to in Steam.

Sure, you can press the F12 key to take a screenshot. Also, if you are using windows, you can press the printscreen key to take a screenshot.

There are essentially three ways. Since Portal 2 is a steamworks title you must play it via Steam. Which means you can use the f12 key and once you exit the game, Steam will upload the screenshot for you.

 

The other way is to use printscreen and then copy and paste the picture into a fil in MSPaint, GIMP or Adobe Photoshop.

 

The third way is to use third party software like X-Fire, FRAPS etc... and then you can set your own keys for screen caps. I use one of my eight mouse buttons for screen caps in xfire. Works like a charm.
