Have you ever wondered if you can take a picture on your Mac using its built-in camera? If you ever have, well you are not the only one out there. Like Windows PC, every Mac includes a built-in camera located near the top of the screen bezel. This allows you to make FaceTime calls or make video calls via any app that requires a camera.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to take a picture on your Mac. Before we begin, keep in mind that the quality of the pictures heavily depends on the FaceTime camera on your Mac. Therefore, make sure that you have a newer Mac model.
