How do I save a pic to jpg from a Quick Time

July 6, 2011 at 06:34:42
Specs: Windows Vista
I accidently had my camera on video when I was taking pictures. I can see the video's, but in order to get the pictures into jpeg, I had to take a picture of the picture on the video and that did not come out too well. I need a clear jpg picture. I tried to right click but it did not give me an option to save as or anything else. I am using Quick Time, as well as My computer's video system. Neither one is allowing me to get a jpg pic from it.

Any suggestions?

To extract still images from a video file you need third-party conversion software like this: http://www.aoamedia.com/videoconver...

Be aware, however, that the quality will not be as good as taking a still picture with your camera because video quality is lower than still-image quality.

You could use VLC player (which is free). Open the video using VLC, then pause it at the point where you want the photo, and then use Video->Snapshot to extract the photo (make sure you first configure where you want the file (.jpg/.png) to be extracted to in Tools->Preferences->Video->Video Snapshot)

Thanks so much for this advice. I did install the VLC and did what you said. I went to the preferences and set where I wanted it to go. Then I went to the video, paused where I wanted it and went to snapshot. It put a picture in the top left corner but phased away, and it was not in the file I meant it to go in. Any other suggestions for this?
