K30 movies mode download as still images?

Hi All,
I am new to digital format cameras. I purchased a K30 with 18 - 135mm and also picked up a 50mm F1.8 for portraits.

Today, I went to a museum and could not figure out why I could not see through the view finder when shooting pics....until after shooting about 50 or so shots and realized I had inadvertently switched from auto mode to movie mode. The images are on the camera, but I can't seem to load them to my computer.

I know I am an idiot, but please help.
Thanks.

If you shot movies, you'll see .MOV files on your camera's memory card. These cannot be converted to full-size stills.

Thanks, Adam.
Is there any way to download these pics to computer? I specifically want to transfer them to an article I am writing for my blog.

All you need to do is either use the usb cable to connect the camera to your computer, or insert the SD card directly into a drive.
