How to Capture an Image From a Video

Share
Take a screenshot while playing the video.

Sometimes you take a great video at an event but fail to take any pictures. You can easily capture a still image from a video by taking a screenshot while playing the video on your iPhone.

To do this, find your video and replay it. When you see a part of the video that you want to capture as a still image, take a screenshot.

For newer iPhone's without a home button:

  • Press and hold the button on upper right side of your iPhone.
  • Simultaneously press and release the Volume Up  (upper left side of your iPhone).

For older iPhone's with a home button:

  • Press and hold the sleep/wake button on the upper right side of your iPhone.
  • Simultaneously press and release the Home Button (bottom middle of your iPhone).

You will hear the sound of your iPhone takng a picture of your screen, which is saved to your camera roll. 

It takes a little practice to get the timing right but is well worth the effort.
