Hello and thank you for your question, I would be happy to help you today. Are you talking about taking a screen shot of your computer?
I have to hold up a piece of paper.. with details on, so i can earn some money.... I have a cam but no idea how to take a screen shot!
i cant ask the children as they will wonder what mummy is up to
So you need to photograph a written document and I presume that needs to be clear enough to read?
i have a piece of a4 paper with all the details on... needless to say it is for an adult website
i am dressed, it is not a naked shot of me!
Okay so you are trying to photograph a paper with specific details on it that need to be readable in the photo?
What type of camera are you trying to use and what do you plan to do with the photo once you take it?
i have to email the photo to a compamy, it will not be seen by anyone else. but in order for me to get paid i have to send the varication.
my camera is a 'trust' something
web cam... i cant get my head around the digital camera!
i need someone to sit next to me....
but i only have 24 hours to take this screen shot
Your web cam may not have the quality you need to produce enough detail. In the event it does, there should be a control to allow you to take a still or freeze frame shot of anything the camera records. What does the page look like when you hold it in front of the camera?
the page looks ok... my handwriting which is a bit OTT
Check the program/software that operates the web cam to see if there is an option to take a freeze or still shot?
it didnt come with anything...
and it is all back to front x
That shot would work if you got a little closer to the camera and framed just the paper.
ok i am just crap at this!
Not true! That last one was not that bad.
How about taking it with your cell phone and send it that way.
well, i have scanned it and done all that i thought was right...
you may well think i am a dredful tart now
but....how do i take a screen shot?
Are you trying to take it with you in the photo?
i have to email it to:
no more than my dressing gown and finger nails
as i said, not naked
Shoot the photo in a full size mirror with flash off.
i dont know how the sodding cam works!
That should be fairly easy. There is a camera app/icon on the cell phone. Once you activate it, the controls are self explanatory.
i am on my pc... dont get me strted on bloody phones
That is perfectly readable.
this really isnt going well
but i have to be holding it......
As I said before, move the paper a little closer to the web camera with you in the background and try again. The last one wasn't bad just not real clear.
are you in the States?
sorry and now you have a cross, eccentric english woman
and its upside down!
Well that's probably not going to work. The upside down part can be easily reversed using any photo editing program. Try framing the shot like you did the first time but move the paper just a little closer. It doesn't need to be much.
sorry i have to vanish... work
we shall see if i get paid!
Okay good luck. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
