    Nothing groundbreaking here but I haven't seen it shared before and It could be a huge time/money saver for most. Since it can't be saturated here you go:

    1. Go find a higlhy relevant 1080p youtube video and put it full screen.
    2. Find a frame you like and pause it. Press Print Screen
    3. Open paint and paste it.
    4. Crop it and save it.
    5. Done. You have a totally unique high quality image for your blog or anything you can think of.


    NOTE: I am pretty sure there are copyright issues here. There is very little chance that someone will find that you use an image from their video but it could happen. Use wisely

    Have you ever heard of auto-screenshot+save(+upload),etc? I think that would help you like a lot:)

    You could also download videos in bulk and run a thumbnail tool on them to get more screenshots with 1-click.

    This is not blackhat lol, this is something you learn out of need when you first start using a computer and the internet. Btw, you can use snipping tool (Win 7 and higher) to immediately select the picture and save it.

    How sweet, let's all go back to the early 2000's when this was cutting edge. Just go on pixabay a lot quicker and better quality.

    Since you've been a guru since the 2000's you should know that pixabay's pics are not unique.

    I admit I didn't know about snipping tool. I will test it. Does it remove the bars though?

    aha, I did this about 2 weeks ago for the background of a banner ad. No problems yet.

    Good method, there are manual as well as automatic ways of doing things.

    Cmon! Go to istock for example, search for images, drag and drop the preview image to google images and bang!

    I remember when I was four and I first touched my brothers computer. I wanted to take a picture of his Diablo character so I used the print screen button and I did that. That was like fifteen years ago.

    Hahaha ok I admit it, It IS basic stuff. I didn't even claim otherwise. Maybe the blackhat part pissed some off. :)

    But you all guys miss the point, it's just a way to get unique images, not royalty free that are used by hundreds but UNIQUE. If that feels the same to you as using pics from pixabay or istock what I can say.

    I think that downloading a picture that's not yours and applying few filters on it and maybe adding some text is making it unique and one of a kind. Bang, new method :D

    I think that you shouldn't have said that it's a UNIQUE and BlackHat method. :D

    Yeah the blackhat part was unnecessary :) The unique part was for the pictures not the method though. Sure you can use filters but google is getting smarter in identifying pictures, even when using filters. Of course there are other methods but this is an easy booletproof method for some noobs that haven't thought about it. Can't understand why so much hate

    Well actually, the thread title, and content is perfectly linear. While many of you have posted alternate methods to accomplish similar goals I think we can stop flaming the OP overall, because even though it is 2016 many of our members might not have thought of such simple things. This strategy comes in particularly handy in the moment quite often, and while it's nothing I would call automated or anything - it's true to what the OP said it can do, and it is a bit BH(Questionably Moral) for obvious reasons.

    Thanks for your contribution OP.

    Home Page:
    1. Search for a public domain / creative commons zero picture (eg. on pixabay, unsplash, etc.)
    2. Run it through a filter / watermark it (there are tools that may do this in bulk or use Photoshop if you have it)
    3. Enjoy your unique image - without infringing any copyright

    My thoughts exactly in proper English :p

    It's a simple method but has many uses actually. I would like to show the haters a page I did a couple of time ago using this method with a 10 part DIY guide. Each part had an original high quality and relevant pic. There is NO WAY you could find these pics in pixabay or anywhere. Only in this video I used.

    Not legal though.
    You could as well take images from google then and them through a filter which is probably even faster if you need 3+ images.

    so you are taking stills from a youtube video and claiming they are unique, you have no right to use any other peoples content be it copying a video as a whole or using parts. Pixabay allow you to use images however you want.

    Nice but any reason why the video is always blurry when I pause it?
