Hi David,
The correct version of that command would be:

rlabel :71.a

Command-line specification is explained here:
<http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/midas/frameatom_spec.html>

You can save image files with menu: File... Save Image (or command "copy").

Actually for nice labels in an image, you might want to use 2D Labels instead (menu: Tools.. Utilities... 2D Labels).  Click the Help button on that dialog for more information on how to use it.

See also Chimera tutorials and tips for making nice images:

You can search for help topics using the Chimera menu: Help... Search Documentation. 
I hope this helps,
Elaine
