The popular Skype Internet phone application allows users to make free computer-to-computer video calls worldwide. Skype includes a snapshot feature you can use to take a picture of a person with whom you're speaking. Skype saves these snapshots in the popular PNG image format and stores the files in a standard directory. You can upload Skype snapshots to Facebook by running Facebook's photo upload utility and navigating to the folder that contains your snapshots.
