    Insert picture from Webcam

    I've got some Samsung N145 Plus Win7 netbooks and I went to do the old " insert picture from scanner in Paint" but it doesn't see the webcam

    The bundled Cyberthingy app brings up an image OK but I can't see it from Paint (or OO writer)

    Can someone check their Win7 machines to see if its a Win7 "feature" or a bug with these netbooks?

    Si

    What your looking for is TWAIN compatibility for the aquire feature but this has largely been removed from later versions of MS software in a move I totally disagree with. Office 2010 for instance no longer has a built in scaner feature meaning you have to use the vendor software or Windows Scanning and Fax feature. This was supposedly because third party apps did the job better which seems to be their excuse when they want to rip out features and charge extra for them.

    All this means that the program needs to be aware of and grab the image from the cammera interface directly which means you are probably limited to the vendor app or another third party application that can grab images from the web cammera API.
