Extract photos from your videos with this slick photography app.

What is it about?

Video 2 Photo allows you to export one or more high quality photos from your videos (and Live Photos) in a quick, fun and original way. An animated and original interface allows you to precisely select a picture from all the ones contained in the video. It is also possible to view the video (possibly in full screen) and to directly target a specific time. Once the image is selected, you will be able to view it (possibly in full screen), to eventually crop it (keeping the most interesting part of it) and to export it (to PNG or JPEG files) in different ways.

For those who...

  • Want to have the option of having both still pictures and live video

Not for those who...

  • Don't have the desire to extract photos

Why we love it

It makes it easy to capture pictures from video and allows you to share with family and friends.

An animated and original interface allows you to precisely select a picture from all the ones contained in the video.
It is also possible to view the video (possibly in full screen) and to directly target a specific time.

Once the image is selected, you will be able to view it (possibly in full screen), to eventually crop it (keeping the most interesting part of it) and to export it (to PNG or JPEG files) in different ways:
- archive it in the camera roll of your iDevice
- send it by email
- retrieve it via iTunes file sharing
- copy it (and thus paste it into other applications)
- print it
- open it directly in another application supporting image import.
- and even send it as a tweet or to facebook !

HD Images exported using Video 2 Photo have the highest possible resolution and quality.
Their resolution being the exact same one than the videos they are extracted from (a 1920 x 1080 video will produce 1920 x 1080 images)

If needed, some power user settings, located in the settings application, allows to change some parameters like the output file format (png/jpeg), the associated meta-data, and some behaviors of the application.


You will find the original and intuitive user interface, common to all our videos applications.
These applications have been featured many times by Apple and various websites.

This application can run, on your iPhone and your iPad, as a standalone application, or as an Action Extension (from the compatible applications like the Photo app).
Portrait and Landscape orientations are supported in all screens.
