Paint is .bmp, a picture from a film is what? This is the 8mm Metadirectory:
Hello to everyone:
I have a family CD that was made from old 8mm movies. I would like to capture individual pictures from scenes in them. It was suggested to do as follows: When the picture appears click on "Print Screen", then go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Paint, when Paint opens go to Edit>Paste & the image will appear, then go to File>Save as, then give it a name & store it in a file. It goes downhill from there. I see the picture as long as I am in Paint. If I close out of Windows Media Player it then appears as a black picture in Paint. I tried renaming it as a j-peg but got bupkiss. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Rather than ramble on if more info is needed ask & I will provide it.
