High Resolution/Quality DVD Movie Screenshots

How do they get those high-quality pictures from the movies you see all over the Internet? My question is: Is there a program where I can choose a frame in a movie on DVD, click a button, and have it process a high-resolution screenshot of that particular frame in the movie? I mean, DVDs are high-quality digital discs, so there should be no reason why you shouldn't be able to do this, regardless of your video card. Any ideas? I'm open to freeware or software you have to pay for. Thanks!

Software players such as PowerDVD or WinDVD let you do that.

True. But so far I liked the PowerDVD interface better, at least from screenshot grabbing. WinDVD has an excellent interface on other things, but when it comes to screenshot, I'd like to be able to just press a button to take a screenshot, not select which frame I want to capture, put it on a list and then save it later (sometimes when I play bad disc the program would hang and the frames I've selected before would be gone).

I guess it varies between people but thats just my 2 cents.
