Hi, im running ROS electric on Ubuntu 10.10 and I want to know how I can save depth and/or RGB image from the kinect?!
The kinect publishes Image messages on a variety of topics; start by using
rostopic list to see which ones.
Then, you'll need to subscribe to them. If you just want to save a few images, the
image_view program (
rosrun image_view image_view) will show you what a single camera is seeing, and you can click to save a frame.
For more-general work, you should either record a bagfile (see
rosbag), or write yourself a subscriber node that collects messages and writes them out. See the
cv_bridge packages; those will come in handy.

You can use rosbag and record the data as from any other message.
