well ... I do have a better way to suggest here ... just folow the 4 steps:
NOTE: make sure that your webcam is installed and plugged in.

step 1: go to
step 2: select the tab "SNAP!"
step 3: allow the app to access your cam, and take the shots u want
step 4: click on the shot u want to save and download it.

:o) Congrats! you just took a picture with your webcam without any additional software :o)

.. thats how I do it on a daily basis!
oh ... and you can take avatar pictures as well - you know - these square images used to represent you in forum and blog profiles?

its fun!

Wow! I have a webcam and it used to work on my old computer, but now I hav a new one and they way I used to do it didn't seem to work. This advice really helped and I am able to put my pic on msn!
Thankyou lots!

What about for Imacs?
thanx a ton buddy , its simply awesom , I was nt aware bt this gonna b this easy.

take care.


I've tried that (, it works thanks but it always comes up as a file that I can't use as a profile photo. The main purpose of me wanting to take pictures with my webcam is to get nice profile pictures quickly. Is there a way I can convert or change this? If you know how to do what I'm asking, PLEASE tell me. I'm not an excellent computer whiz and would really appreciate the help. Thanks

You need to go to the file's properties (or even just rename the darn thing) and add ".jpg" after it. If you rename the file when you download it, it strips the file extension.

adding ".jpg" fixes that, and it becomes a useful file again.
