ffmpeg -ss 30 -i video.mkv -i logo.png -filter_complex
"overlay=(W-w)/2:(H-h)/2" -vframes 1 output.jpg
So here we are capturing a frame and also combining an imahe in the center of the captured frame in the same command

You didn't provide many specifics, so here is a generic example:

ffmpeg -ss 30 -i video.mkv -i logo.png -filter_complex
"overlay=(W-w)/2:(H-h)/2" -vframes 1 output.jpg
