How to take photos from videos

Videos can be full of spontaneous, exciting photos.

When hikers hopped the fence above this Yosemite waterfall, I took a video. “Either you guys should come back now,” I said, “or I’ll be selling this to the news.” Fortunately, they were OK. Here are photos I snapped from the video. 

It’s easier than ever to get a good photo from your videos with free software that snaps photos from your videos.

How can I share dotphoto albums, slideshows or individual photos?

How to share photos, album & slideshows

How can I share just one dotphoto album without showing my other albums?

We get this question a lot. If your albums are not protected by a guest password, they are public and can be seen by anyone invited to your album or MyWebsite.

The simple solution is: (1) Add a guest password to your albums in MyAccount and (2) Apply a different password to an album or group of albums that you want to share. 

To test what a guest will see, sign out of your dotphoto account, open a private browsing window, and sign in as a guest, or paste your sharing link into your browser URL

Other uses include finding missing persons and demonstrating medical and skin treatments
