How to get the picture from a Youtube video?

How to retrieve the HD image of a Youtube video to illustrate an article, a post, or a message on a social network?

The classic version: we make a screen impression, then we will paste it into an image editor such as Photoshop.

But how to do it when its machine is not powerful enough to run Adobe Photoshop without too much lagging?

Simply paste this address into the search bar of your browser and replace the ID of the Youtube video:

http://img.youtube.com/vi/YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID/maxresdefault.jpg

Replace “YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID” with the id of the Youtube video in question.

You can then resize the image online.
