This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

the first link in google shows (video!) how to do that... – ArtemStorozhuk Jan 22 '13 at 13:03
Liam, you don't need an app for that. The linked "duplicate" a.o. points out: If you have Android 4.0+: You can press the Power button + the Volume Down button at the same time to take a screenshot. It will be saved to your gallery. Doesn't that work for you? No 3rd party app required. The Nexus 4 is, in general, an Android device -- and this is no feature "specific" to the N4. – Izzy Jan 22 '13 at 15:19

If you are using the stock ROM, you can simultaneously hold the power and volume down buttons for 1-2 seconds. A screenshot will be captured.

If you aren't using stock, you should check the ROM's power menu (hold down the power button).
