time lapse photos coming out as mp4

I have a GoPro HERO 5 BLACK and when I put it in time lapse photo mode, they come out as videos. How do I get them to be jpgs??

Re: time lapse photos coming out as mp4

@cherylc30557 - Just to be sure, is there a chance you selected time lapse video as the option? The time lapse photo option will create jpgs, but the time lapse video option will create an mp4.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: time lapse photos coming out as mp4

vid is first mode, photo is sec mode   time/ lapse is third mode.

 

If you  did the 4K video timelapse and got photos . or did photo time laspe and got video then you got a bug. and   you may need to  record your actions and show.
