Video 2 Photo - HD allows you to export one or more high quality photos from your videos (and Live Photos) in a quick, fun and original way.
Why would you do that?

• Sometimes you hesitate between taking a photo or a video. Take a video! thanks to 'Video 2 Photo' you can now extract from your video as many images as you like!
• Taking 'The' good picture of an object, animal or person that moves is almost impossible. With 'Video 2 Photo' this becomes feasible.
• You have inadvertently recorded a video when you wanted to take a picture. With 'Video 2 Photo' you can finally recover photos from this video.
• Taking a picture of yourself is always difficult. With 'Video 2 Photo' you can choose exactly the right image that suits you best.
• You need a precise tool to export multiple consecutive photos and use them with another application.
• Choose a representative picture of your best videos and put it as wallpaper or print it in order to have it always with you.
• Have fun watching your favorite movies frame by frame and find the little detail that you had never seen before.

The Input video can be imported from your device in several ways.
The modified version (if there is one) or the original version of the video are both available.
The camera can be used directly to record a video if needed.
You can also connect your device to your computer in order to drag and drop specific videos (Files feature).

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, JPEG or HEIC files) in different ways:
• archive it in the camera roll of your iDevice
• send it by email
• retrieve it via iTunes file sharing (or the File app)
• 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)
On newer devices, 4K video at 60 frames per second gives you great possibilities for beautiful photos!
HDR video can also create HDR images that are colorful and vibrant when viewed in the Photo app, for example.
An exclusive batch export feature allows you to export multiple images from a source video at the same time.

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

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.
Dark mode of iOS13 is supported.

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.

Excellent App

If you’re tired of the default Photos app blocking parts of a video as you scrub through it or having the app change to a different frame right at the last second as you pull your finger off the screen, this app fixes all that. It shows your the entire video with the controls placed under the frame or alternatively you can use a slick full screen view which allows you to zoom a bit but use unobtrusive transparent arrows for frame by frame movement through the video.

What I also particularly love is that you can automatically pull out the pictures from a slideshow video by simply telling the app to extract a frame at a certain interval (for example, every 5th frame of a video can be extracted with the tap of a button).

The only possible addition for the app I could think of would be to have the option of auto-cropping the batch extracted photos so as to intelligently remove the black bands or borders on them for slideshow videos with alternating landscape and portrait photos. But that would just be icing on an already delicious cake. This app does exactly what I needed to, and more, and was was worth every penny.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much!
I have noted your feature request. Automatic cropping would indeed be a nice feature :)
For now, you can manually define the cropping area of one image and automatically apply that same cropping area to the other images in the video.

Never wrote a review but... This app changed my life.... For the loved one I lost...

This app has changed my life.. It's hard when you are alone with your animal and no one can take a photo but you and your selfie stick.... Which always come out hideous.. I suppose this theory works on people as well LOL...
However , my last weekend with saphire I was alone much of the time with the selfie.. All I had wanted was a few really good photos of us, to finalize almost two decades with this exquisite creature... My child... Known to others as a cat..
Anyhow, when i finally learned how to use it as a third party extension, within the photos app... WELL MY LIFE HAS CHANGED ! Im on to wine bottle number 2 now, and have around 30 photos alone that I have extracred, just from two videos !!!! I've got about 40 videos to go, so looks like I will get the frame worthy shots I have grieved over not having, as I was alone... And now this app changed everything...
...IN HONOR OF MY SAPPHIRE... Thank you devs!

I’ve never written a review before but have to because this app is so great - seriously, never before & it is that great.
I take a lot of pictures, mostly of people (my family not random people), & have a ton of photo apps. This app is more helpful to me than all of the others. Instead of trying to take the perfect picture now I primarily take videos. Then, using this app, I go through the video & extract amazing pictures. Every tiny gesture & micro expression is there & the process to ‘snap’ photos from the videos is super simple. If there’s something easier than super simple then it’s that.
If you want to easily take the best candid pictures of your life then you need this app.
