    Is it possible to make part of a 3 sec video into a still pix. I need to stop it so I am able to print a picture. Possible?

    You can pause the video at the correct spot and make a screenshot.

    Your other post in this thread, which asked the same question, has been deleted. Don't post the same question multiple times. It fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow.

    Once you've paused the video, press the home and power buttons simultaneously and immediately release. You should hear a shutter sound and see a white flash. Look in your camera roll and you should see the screenshot from your video.

    I use an app called stillshot you can pull out singles and get that perfect one from your video. It's easy to use

    Another option.

    When you are viewing a video in the Photos app, before you play it, you can tap in the center of the screen to see a timeline bar. There is a small vertical bar you can move back and forth to scroll through the video to pick the frame you want. When you see the frame you want, tap the center of the screen again to make the top and bottom bars disappear. {They do this on their own after a while, if you do nothing}.

    Then, as SciFan57 said, press the power and home buttons at the same time, briefly. A snapshot of the screen will be added to the camera roll. Do this for as many frames as you like.

    I'm sorry for your friend. I hope the pictures help.
