    Hi! I use Final Cut Express to do horse videos, & sometimes I need to export a still shot. I export it as a quicktime video then I import it into Imovie, and do "add still frame to project", then reveal in finder, then I take the still shot and import it into Iphoto. I realize this is a lot of steps and if anyone can give me shorter way to do it, I'd really appreciate it! The problem is that with all that importing and exporting, the photos get stretched out just a little. Is there a way to export them and keep their integrity? THANKS!

    Select the clip in canvas, go to the frame you want to export, go to File > Export > QuickTime Conversions > Chose Still Image from the Format selection and via Options you can set the file type and so on.

    Have you read the manual yet? Because all that information I gave you can be found there on page 793 and the page can be found via entering "export image" as search terms into the search field of the open FCE Manual.pdf file.
