Sometimes it becomes very difficult to track all the users who are using the computer, if a Windows PC is used by multiple users. But for security purpose, if you are not the only person using the laptop or PC, then it is better to keep a track of users and completely monitor the users who are using the PC. For this, your own Webcam installed in your computer may prove to be very useful. Today, we are going discuss a small utility which can help you in tracking the users and even to keep an eye on all the valuables in your room.
WebCamImageSave is basically a small, easy to use, useful and a freely available portable application which has been developed by Nirsoft, and allows the user to capture still images using Webcam. The time interval after which user wants to click the images can be set by the user and all those clicked images can be saved at any local or network location, specified by the user. It provides the user with different formats in which the image can be captured as it supports JPG, BMP and PNG image format and overlays current date and time stamp on captured images, through which user can distinguish between the captured images. Further, it gives the option through which user may choose to add custom label text to images, define label font family, and font size and style in order to make them more precise.
This utility can be easily downloaded from the link given below and after installing it you may observe that by default, it is set to capture Webcam images after every 60 seconds in JPEG format, but as said on the basis of your own requirements you may configure it. Even one may manually capture an image from within the application, which is one of the other option available with the utility.
After launching it for the first time, you may observe the configuration console, where you need to specify values for the various parameters such as, output location, image capture time interval, JPEG quality (0-100), date and time label position, text color and shade color, and custom label text. Here, Custom Label text option allows you to specify the font size, style and size for the custom text, but for that it needs to be enabled.
After configuring it, you need to click OK and you may see that after clicking, it will open the main interface. In that main interface, you may click on the File menu, form where you can manually capture Webcam image and select your Webcam device to connect with the application. Similarly, there are many options which come with various features and functionalities.
One of the important thing which must be noted here is that application may not work if more than one Webcams are plugged to your computer. Otherwise, it is a fine utility and it works with almost all the versions of Windows.
