When I hit "PrtScn" the screen blinks hinting a screenshot is being taken, but then I can't paste it into Gimp. It says there is nothing to paste.

Tails saves print screen images in /home/amnesia (your home directory)

To find the images go to: Applications > Accessories > Files and look for the screenshot file ending .png

Or in gimp you open it through File > Open and it should be there.
