I just created a cool program using C# 2005 Express with the help of a Coding4Fun article written by Scott Hanselman. Well, this program takes pictures with a webcam at fixed intervals of time and uploads them to an FTP location. It also notifies me about every picture taken by sending me an email notification! I’ve named this new software of mine, CamCapture. :)
I used Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) for capturing the pictures from my webcam. WIA is an API included in Windows which helps in unifying the acquisition of images from web cameras, scanners etc.
