Maximum resolution video and photography is one of the main criteria that you should look for when buying a webcamera. Also do not forget that the higher resolution the video, the more Internet speed you will need to send it. But if speed is not enough, then the other person will see all the jerks and delays. To adjust the resolution will need the signature software that comes with the web camera. Browse the CD and install the driver for the webcamera. With them must be established and proprietary software to work with the camera. If the program isn't installed, download it from official website manufacturer.
Run the program and select "Settings". Then view all the tabs or menu items. In some of them you can configure the resolution of video and photos. If your webcam supports HD (720p) or FullHD (1080p) resolutionand Internet speed is more than 1 bitsec., you can choose any of them. Otherwise, it is better to choose 480p or 360p. Of course the quality will be worse, but your partner will see all without delay. Since the last version, the Skype supports FullHD resolution, which will transmit higher quality video. Branded the program has the ability to adjust the gamma, brightness, contrast and other settings for better shooting.
If your camera does not require driver installation and the kit was missing the disc, then the resolution can be changed by a third party program. For example, take the free program ManyCam. With its help it is possible to adjust not only the resolutionbut also apply very cool effects: hats, glasses, eyebrows, noses and so on. Effects overlap in real time, i.e. you move your head, and the program automatically determines the position of the head and applies the effect. Enjoy!
