I took a video with my iPhone 5s. I would like to print one frame of this video as a still picture. I tried taking a screen shot of it, but ended up with the menu on the top and bottom of the picture. Is there an easier way of keeping one frame of a video as a still picture?
If you tap the screen, the top and bottom bars disappear, and you can take your screen shot then. However, taking a screenshot may give you a lower quality result that may not look nice printed out. iMovie (Mac or for iPhone) should be able to do this without a loss in quality, as well as other video editors / certain video players (e.g. VLC).
There are several apps if you want to do it on iphone. I used Vhoto for a while ago. They also added gif conversion. Its free so you can try easily Here are the key features taken from itunes description.
