how do you take photos with webcam

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.

Test the built-in webcam using QuickPlay

 

 

Capture and playback a video image YouCam

Re: how do you take photos with webcam

Hello CHAET,

 

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.
