After months of not finding a half decent webcam app that is offline that allows me to take the occasional picture, I find out that Microsoft paint apparrently can do this.
Problem is, when i hit the file menu, the "from scanner or camera" menu is disabled, even after re-enabling the webcam. help?
apparently that's only if you already have an application displaying output from the webcam.
is there a single simple application that allows you to take a picture directly from your webcam and save it to your hard drive, with no futzing with ftp and all that crap?
there is a billion apps to stream your webcam or whatever, but seems like nothing that will turn your webcam into a camera in a pinch.
And yeah I problably won't use it, but it still would ne nice to have in emergencies.
kinda like cameroid.com, but without all of the effects and as an offline app.
Or a port of Cheese, a GNOME photobooth clone.
