I have a Compaq Presario CQ61 Notebook PC......WF574PA#ABG
Hi, I would like to ask how you take a photo, then save it to pictures folder using the webcam. I can take a photo using Skype, but can't get it to my picture folder. Do I need a program for this? If so where do I get one? Could someone please assist. Thank you in advance.

I see that you have questions about using your webcam when your computer is offline. If you have webcam software on your computer it will take pictures without the computer being online.
The YouCam program that comes with most of the newer HP models will allow you to use the webcam to take pictures.

Actually same prob was with my webcam. It was working fine according to device manager but I didn't know how to take pics. So the problem was that I haven't Installed Hp webcam driver. So I advise you to go to Hp official website and Install webcam driver. I'll be fine then. SO try it out.
You're most welcome for any other querry.
