    I have seen many places where people use the app's actual icon for something. The most common place is the exchange club, so I am sure many know what I mean.

    So, I was wondering how you get these images.
    I have tried right clicking in itunes but that only gives me a way to copy the url.

    Hope this makes sense what I am asking for and any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Screenshot of it. And then upload the picture to a website and post it here.

    Or you can get the icon from Appshopper.com, and then just paste the image.

    Thanks to both of you, but I think I will be doing the latter since the first seems like too much work.

    One more noob question, how do you take a screenshot of your computer???

    It's really not hard... Just press CTRL+Alt+Print Screen (next to scroll lock), go into Paint/Photoshop/GIMp, and CTRL+V

    You don't even need to press CTRL+ALT
    Just press Print Screen and paste it in MSPaint.

    I use FastStone Capture. Works pretty well for me. Then I go into GIMP and make the parts that I don't need around it transparent.
