Poll 724: Best way to verb “screenshot” in present and past tenses?

Total votes: 711

When I screenshot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshot.: 318 (44.7%)
When I screenshot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshotted.: 223 (31.4%)  
When I screenshoot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshot.: 130 (18.3%)
When I screenshoot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshotted.: 28 (3.9%)
When I screenshot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshooted.: 7 (1.0%)
When I screenshoot an image, I end up with an image that I screenshooted.: 5 (0.7%)

I received a few quite strident write-ins from people saying that "screenshot" shouldn't be used as a verb - the only correct way to say this would be: "When I take a screenshot of an image, I end up with an image that is a screenshot."

Some other people took a different approach and suggested that the past tense should be: "I end up with an image that I screenshat."
