I recently went on a 25th wedding anniversary trip to Mexico.
While touring the Mayan ruins at Tulum, our tour guide offered to take a picture with our video camera (that also takes stills).
He did not press down long enough or hard enough to actually take the photo and I (stupidly) did not check.
Funny! He actually taped a few seconds of us before I realized it was in the wrong mode and changed it for him to take the picture. So!
I do actually have footage of the shot I want but my effort at getting a still shot in Windows Movie Maker was NOT good.
I am asking for help because as luck would have it this would be the ONLY good shot of the two of together from the entire trip!!!

If anybody has any suggestions about using a different program, etc. or maybe clarifying how I might improve on one using Windows Movie Maker I would really appreciate it!
