Dear Computer Lady,
I need your help! I have a Dell laptop with Windows 7.
I have a program called Windows Movie Maker and would like to transfer a CD that has old home movies on it to my computer. The reason is that I would like to take some of the movie frames and pick out certain relatives who have passed on and put the pictures on a closed family group webpage on Facebook for those who would like to see them.
I can put the entire CD on my laptop, but I’m stuck from there on. How do I bring up certain clips (pictures) of the video, save them on my laptop, so I can upload them to the family webpage? I did get a few of the clips from the CD, but don’t have a clue as to how I did it.
Can you give me some pointers on how to get certain pictures from the CD, and put them on my computer? I’ve been racking my brain for a couple months trying to figure this out. I need help!
Thank you in advance. Susan
Are you sure that is something that Windows Movie Maker can do?
I have looked at the website, and don’t see any mention of being able to extract a frame to a still picture.
Unfortunately, if it is not a feature built into the program, then you can’t do it with that program.
I did find a free program online called, Image Grab at: http://paul.glagla.free.fr/imagegrab_en.htm
I have not used this program, but there are a couple of really positive reviews online.
