Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating still images from iPhone video clips, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…I take a lot of photos with my iPhone. And I shoot a lot of video.…And if you're like me, sometimes you find that…the video is what you wish had been a still.…You wish you could extract some sort of still image from the video.…And I want to show you how to do that in Photoshop.…So we're going to come here to the Import dialogue.…And we go video>frames>layers.…And you'll see that I've got a video file in here.…And you're welcome to use your own.…And we're just going to open that up, and we've…got a little play head here that allows us…to scroll and see us panning our video, and…we can choose and different area we might want,…and I think that's about the composition that I want.…
So what I'm going to do is I'm going to grab this little pointer at the beginning.…And I'm going to scrub over just ahead my play head.…And I'm going to grab the other one. And I'm going to scrub to just after.…And you see that it's automatically told Photoshop…to only select that range. And now I'm going to click okay.…And Photoshop is going to load all of those layers in.…
