How can I take a 1280 x 720 still (jpg) image from a camtasia recording? 


I have been using the snipping tool just to grab an image, but the dimensions are way below the 1280x720 pictures that I would need for YouTube.

Assuming that the video dimensions are 1280x720, the simplest way would be to have the playhead positioned so the image you want is showing, then press Ctrl+F and save the frame.

If the dimensions are different, you might want to investigate using Camtasia's older brother SnagIt to resize or otherwise alter the image.

Where is the image located? Local?  I/N? What program are you using to display it for "snipping"?
