Take photos during a video-call

If I'm having a video call on Skype for Mac how do I take a photo of the other person?

I am not aware of any built-in commands in Skype to take pictures, but you can always use the MacOS built-in screengrab tools. 

Press Command-Shift-3 to screengrab the whole screen to a file on your desktop

or press Command-Shift-4 to screengrab a selection.
