I would like to pause a DVD and copy the still on my screen as a JPEG to use for the DVD box
Can anyone advise how to do this
Thanks

When it is displayed on the screen, press the Prnt Scrn button on your kekboard. That will copy it to the clipboard. Then paste it into your graphics manipulation program, Paint will do, it comes free with Windows. Then save it as a jpg.

Whatever software you are using to view the dvd will most likely have a Capture or software button.Then you usually have a choice of what format to save in.Say what you are using and someone will know where thre buton is.Print screen is ok if your image is full screen other wise you will have to crop out all else showing

I use Topaz Moment, it improves the quality of the picture it saves, think there's a free trial version 250 use fully functional.
