Personally I'm not aware of anything that works

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Take photos from my webca ...

But again I do not support Vista either so I suggest that you ask here at the Windows Vista Community

Or TR 2 own self confessed Vista Guru's who claim to know everything that there is to know

Rickk can be found here

And Tonyk can be found here though he doesn't accept personal messages probably because he's was constantly flooded with questions on how to make Vista work properly but you can add him to your Contacts list and look for him when he's on TR and ask him directly through one of the threads that he is participating in

I'm sure that he will not mind as he takes every opportunity to tell anyone who will listen just how great Vista is.

Software for webcam photos

by thesnapteam In reply to Take photos from my webca ...

Hi, Snap is software that is free, easy, fun, and creative. It's very similar to Mac's Photo Booth, but for windows/pc. You can use it with your HP webcam, and even load pictures onto PhotoBucket and more!
Just go to and click download.
Plus if you want to enhance Snap original you can purchase the updated version.
I hope you enjoy yourself!
Thanks, The Snap Team

Update QuickPlay then download YouCam webcam software

by nukemdomis In reply to Take photos from my webca ...

After I found out how to <a href="" target="_blank">download and update HP QuickPlay</a>, my webcam started being more reliable. No more restarting and the fustrations that accompany those webcam problems.<br> <br>
In addition to QuickPlay, I also use <a href="" target="_blank">webcam software called YouCam</a>. This program allows you to record video, capture single pictures, and even burst shots. This program works with the most popular instant messengers on my HP laptop and since installing it, I haven't had any problems.
