Yes, this has been removed in version 8. You can now access these settings under Share/Personal Computer/Still Photo.
(FWIW, in my books on version 8, I show you how to create a preset for outputting a photo with more standard square pixels )
Thanks Steve. This solution works however I now have 2 further comments...
- Locating this function in "share" is poor workflow i.e. you have to go to a different tab/area to create the still.
- The image (attached) which was created using the setting "JPEG- HD1920x1080" does not fill the entire screen. I am left with black bars down either side? Any suggestions of how to rectify this?

This is why you need my book, Gazz!
When it comes to outputting a still using Share/Personal Computer in version 8, you can use one of the presets or create one of your own. I give instructions for creating a square pixel preset output in book, since none of the presets will do so.
I'm assuming you're outputting from a hi-def video. If so, and you plan to use this still in a hi-def project, then you want to choose the 1440x1080 option. This will output an animorphic (non-square pixel) image that should work perfectly in your hi-def project.
Though I am anything but a "big button guy," I would like to see the Export>Still Frame (regardless of from whence it's accessed) be simplified in both Adobe programs, PrE and PrPro. When PrPro CS4 was introduced, they took a simple process and reworked it. Then, it took 8 steps, just to do a Still Frame! With CS 4.2, things got better, but they forgot to add back in the "Add to Project" setting from earlier versions. About half the time, I do this. With a checkbox, that was easy. Half the time, I left it checked, and the other half, I unchecked it. Now, in PrPro CS4.2, it takes about 3 more steps to add the Exported Still Frame to the Project.
What I would like would be a single button, and the ability to establish a default Preset, especially a custom one. The only dialog would be, "Add to Project?" and it would be a simple radio button. Maybe even allow the user to customize that in their custom default, with a potential override available, if needed. I'd do this for both PrE and PrPro. It would take moments to set up, and then would be just a click away.
