Skype snapshots are the video snapshots that you have captured of yourself and others from video chat sessions. Skype snapshots are a fun and useful way for you to preserve the different moments you have with your family, friends and other contacts. Each snapshot you take is stored in a folder on your computer's system for you to view later. You can access the Skype Snapshots Gallery from the main window of the application.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Skype.

  2. 2

    Enter your Skype name and password and click the "Sign In" button.

  3. 3

    Click "View" in the program's menu and select "Snapshots Gallery."

Tips and warnings

  • Skype snapshots are saved to "C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Pictures" in the Windows Vista and Windows 7 versions. In Windows XP, snapshots are saved to "C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Skype\Pictures." Replace "" with your Windows account user name.
