Getting Photos from a Video in the Editor
If you have a digital video in a file format that Photoshop Elements can recognize, such as ASF, AVI, MPEG, M1V, and WMV, you can open it in the Editor, play the video in the Frame From Video dialog box and then capture frames as individual photo files. The individual photo files are saved with the name of the video file and a number. For example, videoname01, videoname02, videoname03, etc. In addition to Photoshop Elements, you also need to install the latest version of standard video software, such as QuickTime or Windows Media Player, which you can get for free online at www.apple.com and www.microsoft.com.
