Apart from Joel Spolsky for FogBugz? ;-)

Probably the smoothest way would be for you to write a tray icon app 
which read the clipboard, created an image file, and attached it to a 
given bug number. So you press Alt-PrtScrn, click on the tray icon, and 
enter the bug number in the box which pops up.
