    Taking pictures from Google Earth

    I noticed that a lot of people, when showing overhead views of the parks, tend to use images from Google Earth. I would like to know, how do you take pictures like that? How do you copy pictures from Google Earth to use here?
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    For those who have no tools beyond a base install ( or an older operating system ) there's always:

    1) Hold "Windows key" ( ) + tap "Print Key" = Copy image of entire desktop
    2) Launch START --> ALL PRORGAMS --> ACCESSORIES --> MS Paint ( should be on every Windows operating system )
    3) CTRL + V = pastes screencap

    Edit it down to size from there.

    I tried that. It doesn't seem to be working. All I get is a blank dotted-line rectangle. What am I doing wrong?
