Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New for ImageGrab

version 6.0

It can open the main types of video file for playing and navigate very precisely and comfortably in the file to reach the desired image.

It can extract the current image from the video with a single click or pressing a key on the keyboard.

The extracted images can be numbered or marked with the timestamp and saved in the folder of your choice.

An intervalometer allows to extract periodically, very simply and automatically, an image
