This publication describes techniques to provide high-quality images automatically in response to a user long-pressing (making a press and hold gesture) a shutter button on an imaging device. The high-quality images may be selected from after the long-press of the shutter is detected by the imaging device, before the long-press is detected by the imaging device, and/or before the shutter is pressed. A machine-learning technique that ranks video images by their quality and diversity is used to select desirable high-quality images. Both high-quality images and video can be provided to a user in a digital multimedia container format (e.g., MP4) that is compatible with existing media players.
