Turn a single video frame into a photo with StillShot

StillShot will let you save a single video frame as a photo on your iPhone in just a few short steps. Here's how it works.

How many times have you gone to take a picture and realized your iPhone was still in video mode after hitting the shutter button? How many videos have you taken and wished you could've taken a photo as well? By using a new app called StillShot, you can dissect a video, frame-by-frame, and save a single frame to your Camera Roll.

Once you have loaded up a video in StillShot, you'll see the first frame of the video loaded. The time of the clip, along with the frame number for that second of video is displayed on each photo.

You can skip ahead by moving the slider along the bottom, or by pressing the Play button and watching the video until it gets to the segment you want the photo from.

By swiping the frame from right-to-left, you advance one frame forward in the video. Once you're ready to turn a frame from video into a photo, tap Save. The frame will then be saved to your Camera Roll.

StillShot is an app you probably won't use every day, but an app that just may end up saving the day, and that perfect shot, from being ruined.

StillShot is available in the App Store for $0.99.
