Have you ever needed a simple took that lets you take pictures from your webcam directly - without having to install anything?
This used to be a major hassle for most non-tech users.
Well ... thanks to Adobe and their latest versions of the Flash Player utilizing a scripting language called Actionscript 3.0 this is now real easy to achieve! If you are among the 99% internet users on the internet that have at least flash player 9 plug-in installed, then you are in the game!
These days there are several websites that are employing the new technology to deliver to their users the capturing of webcam images as a free and accessible online service.
Your top picks are:
#1 : www.Picanom.com - really simple to use go-and-play type of service - no registrations or additional steps required - just go to the site and Snap! your pictures.
#2: www.Cameroid.com - this one is a bit more complex and sophisticated and also free.
However our favorite is Picanom ... Not only for its simplicity but also for its efficiency and timesaving functionality.
And here's a bit more about it:
Most important features:
The site has a SNAP! section where most of the action is - this is the section where you take your pictures - they show up in the upper right corner within a 6 frames container. when you click on any of the shots within that container, the shot flies in inside the image window - you hit the save button and then the additional menu appears - the email and download buttons. A great way to share it with your friends is to email it to adult you tube yourself - you will get an email with the picture page and you can share it right away on facebook, twitter and pretty much all of the major social networking and adult sex site social bookmarking sites.
Now if you are into playing - you might consider using some of the fun settings as well - there are some color filters you can apply directly to the image you are planning to capture as well as some distortion presets that will make the picture look weird and funny.
There is also a nice Avatar section on Picanom that captures your webcam picture in a square frame. This type of images are commonly used as avatars with user accounts in blogs, forums and even with twitter, facebook and myspace.
So, if you are among those of us who spend most of their awake (and sometimes asleep) time before the computer screens, Picanom is a really handy tool you will find yourself using quite often - whether you want to take a picture of your own face, and share it with your friends or your dog is sitting right next to you and you just have to take a picture of you two and the webcam is the closest camera you have in hand, jump to www.Picanom.com and snap the shot. Now you know how you can capture many of those moments that happen around you that are worth capturing and sharing.
