Does ilife08 allow you to pull still photos from films? Or is there a better way to do this? I do believe this can be done but I am not sure how. Any insight would be helpful.

If you mean taking screen shots of playing video in quicktime, Command + Shift 3 or Command + Shift + 4, OR Command + Shift + 4 + Spacebar, should allow you take a picture of a quicktime window. You can't do it in DVD Player without an apple script. It's really easy though.

Create a script with the contents of this, "screencapture -iW ~/Desktop/dvd-window.png" and save it into Library/Application Support/DVDPlayer/Scripts

You should then be able to take screen shots of the dvd player.
