Re: snapshot gallery

Using the snapshot gallery you can only see snapshots of incoming video which were taken on your own computer. If you take a snapshot of yourself, it will not be shown in the gallery. The snapshots gallery menu will first be activated when you have at least one image of the incoming video in the Pictures folder. You can access this folder by executing the command %appdata%\skype\pictures from Windows Start Search/Run box.

Re: snapshot gallery

There is no separate snapshot button in Video settings. The Change your profile picture button actually takes a snapshot but also you will get changed your profile picture. This is a very strange and annoying modification of the functionality made in Skype 5.5.

Re: snapshot gallery

Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata%\skype\pictures, press Enter or OK button. If you still have any video snapshots, you shold find them in this Pictures folder.

Re: snapshot gallery

Where the hell did all of my snapshots go?

Yes, I entered "%appdata%\skype\pictures" in the run command. No, they aren't there.
And no, I do not want to rejoin facebook. I've been sober of it for a few months now, ever since they started getting squirrely with my information, and since the ToS's started getting longer and longer. The passage "... To use your name, likeness and image for any purpose, including commercial or advertising, each of (a) and (b) on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof..." had me pretty much convinced, among the rest of the prolix lawyerspeak.

Now, with all of the buying outs and the mergers and all that greedy nonsense, I can't say I'm surprised to witness leaks in the system such as these -- however intentional they might actually be. Either way, it's upsetting, disturbing, and downright scary. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to trust these guys to do the right and respectful things with their faithful consumers. Not to mention the federal government's attemps to censor the web. The devil is in the details.

 

As this new year goes on and conspiracy awareness swells, "the end" could be anybody's guess. My opinion? Social networking has a perfect disguise and an overwhelming command of the masses. What would you do with that kind of power?
