it removes the gun/hand from the screen, then removes the crosshair, takes the screenshot, and then returns the gun/hand and crosshair back to normal. it's nice if you don't like all the distractions in your screenshots. feel free to modify to your liking.

As far as I know, there's no console command to remove the HUD. You would probably have to create a custom pak file with transparent icons or edit them out of the screenshot with Photoshop, as Grieve suggested.
Ok guys. I made a small pak temporarily. At this moment it contains just 4 images, the 4 default pics when You start a map: the 1 and 0 for 100 health, the cross for health, and the blaster pic. So if You won't pick up anything (in development mode for example, where You don't play the level exactly, just surfing in it) the HUD will be full blank. Put it in the baseq2 or whatever directory You want, and rename it to an available pak number (pak7.pak etc). Feel free to use it to make a big pak with the full picture set! bye
For making the crosshair(s) invisible, you can take the crosshairs of the Dday-mod (ch1.pcx, ch2.pcx and ch3.pcx) and put them into a pak-file, they are transparent by default cause the Dday mod doesn't use crosshairs!
