There is a great video of one of my grandsons on facebook and I want to make it into a still photo to scrap it. Is there a way to do that?

Here are the directions a friend gave me.


"Joy, do you have Windows Live Movie Maker? Here are the directions for that:

-Open Windows Live Movie Maker
-Click on the large box that says "click here to browse for videos". Find and select a video from your pictures library
-There will be a black line at the start of your video. Drag that black line with your cursor until you find a frame you want to use as a photo.
-Along the top of the window, there are different options. Select Snapshot.
-The save box will pop up asking you to name the file.

Your picture is now saved!

It is saved as a png file. To convert it to a jpg file, go to Paint, open the file, then save as a jpg.

Hope this works for you!
