I meant the section below this but that was when I thought you might be using the Android app.

I've done a quick Google search myself for 'capture webcam image' and there are a couple of freeware utilities listed down the page although I know nothing about them:

Something I saw also suggested that it might be possible to take a picture using the software installed with your webcam but I know nothing about that either as I don't use my webcam.
