Taking Video with your Laptop’s Camera

This week’s tip is way cool!  And, it’s so easy. We have so much capability in our laptop computers these days – like that little video camera built right in to the lid. You should see it staring at you when you’re using your computer.

But … how do you use it? Picasa makes it OH-SO-EASY, just click one button and you can start talking into the camera. Click another button to stop it, then a third to upload it to youtube. Watch the free 2 minute video below to see exactly how its done.
