Convert your Movies and Videos to Image based JPEG Files for Free

  This program will extract or convert video frames and movies into good quality .jpg images. (The basic picture quality will depend on the actual quality of your video/film/movie). You can even have the program stamp a watermark or logo of your choice on the images you extract from your video file! You can get your results in as little as 3 steps or as little as 5 steps if you want to include a watermark image.

Step 1: Select the Source Video/Movie/Picture/Image you want to use.
Step 2: Specify the path and filename where you want the extracted video frame images to be saved.
Step 3: Then click on the Extract button. Nothing complicated about it!

If you want to put a watermark or logo then perform Step 1 and Step 2 as specified above. Then begin Step 3 as outlined below..

Step 3: Under the Options menu click the ‘Include Logo/Watermark’ item to Enable the watermark feature.
Step 4: Select the Watermark or Logo you want to use.

There are other very simple to use options like placing the watermark at the Top-Left, Top-Right, Bottom-Left, Bottom-Right (Default Position), or Center of the extracted video frame images. If thats not good enough then you can specify your Own custom position to place your logo or watermark! Transparent .PNG (Portable Network Document) images are fully supported! You can use pretty much any .PNG or .JPG (JPEG) picture/image as your watermark. Just make sure the image is not bigger than the video frame(s) and you should have no problems using this feature!

Another feature is the ability to set a pre-determined size, or a resolution of your exact choice to save your extracted video frames. Many of the most common resolutions are already selectable allow you to tell the images what size to save at. If the item “No Change” is selected, which is the default setting, then the images extracted from the video will be saved at the same exact size/resolution as the source video frames are.

Note: I do recommend you downloadand install a decent codec pack like K-Lite Standard edition. This will help you to playback and encode most all of the popular codec formats. The K-Lite Standard Edition also includes an MPEG2 driver for DVD playback.

Very Fast, High Quality Extraction Engine


This program uses the excellent FFMPeg.exe extraction and encoding engine for high quality, high speed results. FFMPeg is a popular and proven open source library for most audio and video extraction and
encoding needs.
Fully Scanned and No Problems!
The csSimpleVideoImageExtraction Tool program only highlights a small portion of FFMPEG’s capabilities. If you wish to know more about ffmpeg then go to this website.
