Which version and what operating system?
Although knowing the version of Premiere Elements and the computer operating system on which it is running are important, it is important to know what you seek when
you say "..produce an image file from part of my video in timeline...."
1. Do you want to generate a screen capture (freeze frame), exporting it in the sharing area/Image category as a jpeg
2. Are you referring to producing a portion of your Timeline video to a disc image in the sharing area of Premiere Elements 13?
If what you want to do is related to "1" above, then full step by step details should be found in the following link
If what you want to do is related to "2", then there are some considerations we need to explore.
Please review, supply more details. Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
I want to screen capture and save as an image file for use as a photo. Thanks for your info the freeze frame option worked just fine.
Thanks for the follow up with the good news that you were OK with the Freeze Frame suggestion.
If you are interested in obtaining more than one freeze frame from a video at one time, then please also
check out the "Export As Sequence" option in the Advanced settings for Publish+Share/Computer/Image.
Hi - I’m really impressed and grateful for the support provided and will check out the “Export as Sequence” option you mention.
Again, many thanks,
