In any case, you'll want to save the screenshot as png, and save as png again from photoshop. PNG is a lossless format, so it's going to be fine. Theoretically your source footage is YV12 and it's going to get converted to RGB during this process, but most if not all NLEs tend to work in RGB to begin with, so the colourspace conversion is generally unavoidable in either case. Saving png from vdub has been explained by Mister Hatt. To load them in vegas, you can just drag and drop the png, it will load them fine.

All you need to do is copy the current frame to clipboard in vdub, then in PS hit File->New and it will be clever and read the resolution of what's in clipboard for you, so just hit OK. Then paste. Of course I am assuming you're running PS9 (CS2) or newer. Note that REGARDLESS OF THE RESOLUTION, the colourimetry conversion will be using the bt601 matrices. You may want to compare in avs or something a re-insert to make sure the colours are as expected.

I believe vdub does save the frame number in the filename if you tell it to, then you'll just have to keep the number when you save the images from photoshop after you're done, and after that it should be easy to get them as a png sequence in vegas.
