Print from video?
« on: December 29, 2017, 10:02:01 PM »
I have a 30 second video of hummingbirds around a feeder. Is it possible to get a single image printed?

The simple answer is Yes but it sounds as though you want to outsource the printing in which case, Maybe.
If that sounds a little weird then...
You can edit digital video in Photoshop and extract a single frame which you can print.
How large you can print it will depend on the resolution of the video.
If you have Photoshop, you can extract the single frame and look at it.  If not then you will need to find a sympathetic person to look at it for you.
If you are hoping a printing house will do it for you then I do not know ...john

If you do not have Photoshop, try this. You may well be infringing someones copyright by doing it unless it is your own film. :D

If you use Windows 10 (or Windows eight) you can type 'Snip' into the cortana search and start the snipping tool. Run your film and pause it at the frame you want, watch that you are not between frames. Follow the instructions in the tool to save the frame to your clipboard or a hard drive location. Paste it into a photo editor. The Quality can only be as good as the original quality of the film.
