Extract images from videos using Imagegrab



Imagegrab is a free utility which can help us in extracting images from any type of video files, VideoCds and live network streams which are delivered to the computer by a webcam or a camcorder.

The program is easy to use and requires no installation. Just run the application and the window will get displayed where you can open the video.

Just open the video from which you want to extract the images using the Open video button. The video will be loaded and using the inbuilt media player, you can select the frame of which you want an image. Just click on a single button and it will be saved to your computer.

You can also set the aspect ratio of the images which can be “Normal”, “4X3″ or “16X9″. You can also specify the directory where you want the images to be stored. If you want to extract images from the whole video, you can also specify the time interval at which it will take screenshots while the video is being played. It could have been much better if it would allow us to take screenshots in higher resolutions but still it is a good tool if you want to extract images of your favorite scenes etc.

    Many video players have this option – for example, ZoomPlayer. But that cant capture images from a web cam.

    Not bad, I often find it troublesome trying to grab images from vids and the need comes up surprisingly often.

  5. @Binny
    I will have to give zoom player a try

    @syahid
    Though it lacks some features, it is useful

    @Rakshit
    Do try it

    @Bush
    It does that job well. One thing i miss is that it doesnt allow us to save images in high resolution.

  7. Hey Madhur, good post. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. I always end up finding some software written in another language! Annoying!

    Also, nice new design as compared to the previous one!

    What is the format of the picture taken? Is the resolution good?
