Hi Adobe Elements QA Department-
The Freeze Frame tool looses the aspect ratio as it saves a frame. I use freeze frame to build green screen sections for my videos. The tool has worked perfectly for years, but now, my widescreen freeze frames are reformatted as square (or almost square). The color changes slightly as well.
I've installed the latest updates, but the problem/bug persists.
A little help here!

That said, in my experience the freeze frame would only produce an anamorphic photo if your original source video used non-square pixels.
Where did your original source video come from and what is its resolution?
Elements 2020: Just tested it on a hdv clip which has an aspect ratio of 1.333 and it stayed perfectly non-square.
I think I remember it being a problem on standard definition 720x480 video. But I haven't short on SD video in nearly a decade so I don't know if that's still the case.
Just tried it on a PAL and NTSC SD 4:3 clip: no issue.
