Thank you for the quick input. I'll restated the answer- command, shift, 4, will turn the cursor into crosshairs. Which you press and hold, move to encompass what you want to capture, and release. The picture is saved to your desktop.

If you do not want do download MPEG Streamclip.
The way I make a still from iMovie 11 is to add the clip to a project.
Move the red line over where you want the still to be captured and right click and select 'add freeze frame' to add a 4 second still.
I do this with all the stills that I want to capture and then delete all but the frozen frames.
I then share the project as Quicktime movie and open the mov in Quicktime full screen when the freeze frame is showing I pause Quicktime then click Shift+cmd+4. this allows you to select the part of the picture you want to capture and it saves a copy to the desk top as a .pgn; you do this for each of the pictures, you then have stills of the image as you want them.
I hope this helps.
