I know I can make a jpg still shot with FCP7. But can I then improve the quality? Does exporting as a TIF with higher pixel count in Preview improve it somehow? I have no idea.

Thanks in advance smarter folks!

The stills exported are 72dpi...and are the dimensions of your video...be it 720x480, 1280x720 or 1920x1080. Making the dimensions bigger won't improve the image quality. There are plugins for Photoshop that help upscaling and smoothing of the image...but some say not to rely on those, as Photoshop itself can do it...

And google landed me here:

Is there any type of photo - tiff, png, or jpg - that is better than another to use in FCP7?

IMO tiff and png work best. If I have one jpg I usually just put it in the timeline and render it but if I have a lot it's better to convert them to png or tiff because FCP can get a bit glitchy and slow with lots of jpgs.
