Fantastic! Thanks Ray! The next trouble I'm having is knowing how to handle them in Photoshop!

You can export a clip or sequence, as a sequence of still images, with each frame as a separate still image file. This can be useful to move a clip to animation and three dimensional applications that do not import video file formats, or for use in animation programs that require a still image sequence. For example, you could export a series of still images from Adobe Premiere Pro, import them into Adobe Illustrator to use its LiveTrace feature, and then bring the altered sequence back into Adobe Premiere Pro for further editing. When you export a still‑image sequence, Adobe Premiere Pro numbers the still-image files automatically.
Choose File > Export > Movie.
For File Type, choose a still‑image sequence format (Windows Bitmap, GIF, Targa, or TIFF).
If you choose a movie format or Animated GIF, all the frames will be in one file.
Choose the frames to export from the Range menu.
Click Video, and specify options.
Click Keyframe And Rendering, specify options, and then click OK.
Specify a location to which you want to export all of the still‑image files.
Itís usually best to specify an empty folder so that the sequence files donít become mixed with other files.
To set the sequence numbering, type a numbered filename.
To specify the number of digits in the filename, determine how many digits are required to number the frames, and then add any additional zeroes you want. For example, if you want to export 20 frames and you want the filename to have five digits, type Car000 for the first filename (the remaining files are automatically named Car00001, Car00002,...Car00020).
Click OK to export the still‑image sequence.
