Saving webcam photos

I know this may seem like a stupid question, but how the heck do I save pictures captured withe webcam to my picture folders? I've tried everything I can think of.

I have an HP dv7-3079nr and am running Windows 7. I'm about to tear my hair out trhying to figure this out.

Re: Saving webcam photos

Hi,

 

If you are using MediaSmart Webcam software, any snapshots you take are automatically stored in a folder called Webcam which you should find within your Pictures folder - ie click the Start Menu, click Pictures, then double click the Webcam folder.  You can then either cut or copy the images back into the Pictures folder ( or wherever you wish ).  Videos are stored in a folder called Webcam which is located in your Video folder.

 

Best wishes and a happy new year,

Re: Saving webcam photos

Thank you so much! I didn't see a way to change where the pictures are stored, but at least I found the ones that were already in there. I can live with that!
