What is a webcam?

Do webcams hook to a computer
w/out additional software?

Can a webcam somehow take a still photo?
(Maybe a website allows or arranges this?)

Can THAT still photo be posted to a webpage?

What is a webcam?

A (usually) low-medium resolution camera that is connected directly to the pc/laptop and relies on the computer for power/processing - it cannot be used as a standalone camera.

Do webcams hook to a computer w/out additional software? They need a computer to be able to work and they come supplied with their own software.

Can a webcam somehow take a still photo? Yes

(Maybe a website allows or arranges this?) No, you can do it yourself with the supplied software.

Can THAT still photo be posted to a webpage? Yes.
