Firstly, you have to decide where you are going to source your smk episodes from.. the dvds? saving streaming online video? I am not in the USA, so don’t have access to any of the sites that stream SMK.. so can’t offer you advice there.
Lee in a tux!! Do I need an excuse??
However, in the past I have ripped my discs to my computer – in WMV format –[using AoA dvd ripper] and used windows movie maker [free and probably already on your computer!] to take snapshots – (this is called the ‘take picture from preview’ function.. ) – I did this for ages..
Recently I have tried to improve the quality of my snapshots… ( you can judge for yourself if it worked.. LOL.. ) I now rip my discs in AVI or DIVX format –[using AoA dvd Ripper] and then watch the video in GOM player [free to download online.. http://player.gomlab.com/eng/]– which takes photos in bursts or one at a time..easy to adjust brightness/contrast etc before taking photos- this player is very new to me but so far I love it!
You can also take snapshots in a VLC player [free online.. plays flash maybe other stuff I don’t know! ] – it all depends where you source your episodes and in which format.. a very simple way to take pics..
For adding text to photos – I can suggest ‘paint’ [free and probably already on your computer] or I use my photobucket account [they have free accounts you can use too!].. play around and see what works for you..
