Dear Dodo,

check this for Windows:

The better approach seems to be to take the screenshot image from the clipboard.
Therefore any screenshot tool will do.

This works for me under Windows XP:
(I had to introduce the tilde-buffer-filename variable for irfanview to work)

(defun org-screenshot ()
  "Take a screenshot into a time stamped unique-named file in the same 
directory as the org-buffer and insert
a link to this file."
  (setq tilde-buffer-filename
        (replace-regexp-in-string "/" "\\" (buffer-file-name) t t))
  (setq filename
          (concat tilde-buffer-filename
                  (format-time-string "%Y%m%d_%H%M%S_")) ) ".jpg"))
  ;; Linux: ImageMagick: (call-process "import" nil nil nil filename)
  ;; Windows: Irfanview
  (call-process "c:\\Programme\\IrfanView\\i_view32.exe" nil nil nil (concat 
"/clippaste /convert=" filename))
  (insert (concat "[[file:" filename "]]"))

So this is how it works:

1. take a screenshot with any tool you are used to use
2. change to your org buffer and call "org-screenshot" via M-x

Instead of ".jpg" you can use any format IrfanView understands, for example 

Very useful!
