Insert the micro SD card into your computer. I use a SD card reader and a Micro SD to standard SD card adapter.

Install and run balenaEtcher. You should see the screen in Pic 1. The software should have auto-selected the SD card in the middle of the screen. If it is not your SD card, select change and choose your SD card.

Click Select Image. Select the motionEyeOS file you downloaded before. As stated my file was named motioneyeos-raspberrypi3-20190427.img.xz Your program should look like Pic 2. Click Flash!

There will be a orange progress bar showing Flashing. This will be followed by a box that says Validating. Once complete, you may get warnings about the SD card asking you to format. Ignore these and close the message as it is normal for a Pi image on the card.
