HDV frame stills to Photoshop

When I made stills from frames in FCP before, when I opened them in Photoshop they look fine. But when I open frames from an HDV project in Photoshop they appear squeezed. I can change the Pixel aspect ratio from Square to NTSC Widescreen, but it always gives me a warning that to print with highest quality change it back to square. But then won't they look squeezed? PS I'm nowhere near a printer to check this out.

How best to handle this?

HDV is anamorphic which means that 1920x1080 gets sqaushed to 1440x1080 before recording to tape. So for use with square pixel screens and printers just resize the image to 1920x1080, or anything else with a 16:9 aspect ratio (like 1440x810, 1280x720, etc).
