    Hello, i noticed your question and while jao is the undisputed task master, you can achieve this with another app called GMD gestures, how ever it requires root access. Once you're rooted though you can assign pretty much anything to a gesture, including 3 finger screen shot. Happy to help if you need further info/instruction.

    Also side note GMD is paid app but waaaaaaaaaaaaaay waaaay worth the few bucks it costs. Unlike all other gesture apps I've seen, there is no need to open a tray to input gesture in for it to register and react to it. I particularly like this app on my 10" tablet for navigation and 2/3 finger tap to open my chosen two apps in split screen with 1 tap.

    Thank you! :) I was aware of that app, but since it requires root I didn't think of recommending it. Thanks!

    withOUT root, many launchers (i use Nova) have the ability to define custom gestures and link them to many activities including Tasker tasks.
