If the photos your Toshiba laptop's webcam captures are too dark, too bright, blurry or the colours are poorly saturated, you can adjust the camera's settings to improve the picture quality. The webcam application enables you to tune the brightness, contrast, gamma, hue, saturation and sharpness. Since the camera's picture quality can vary depending on the time of day and amount of available lighting, you can use preset profiles rather than manually adjusting the picture each time.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy
