I have a strange situation where I have created a webcam picture taking app via a Adobe Flash Builder tutorial online.    I have the thing working like 98% but have an unusual situation.   When I run the app from my website it does not save the picture via a php script but when I run it via Flash Builder on my PC then it works and published the JPG to a folder on my site.   tell me if this is not weird, eh?    maybe I just need help on how to properly publish the whole directory structure necessary for Flash Builder projects.

I am not married to using Flash Builder if someone has a FLA for a picture taking app via webcam then that would work too.

You can capture and save images on the local machine without PHP server are you interesting?

sorry for the lag inresponse.  I haven't had a chance to try this option out yet.  the Photo Booth applet looks good but I'd like to confirm before I close this out.

the link to the photo booth turned out to be the ideal thing for me.  altho', the real trouble was with how IIS makes it a pain in the ass to allow to write files to a directory.   I really hate how PHP has become so ubiquitous.  using a syntax that must be over 30 years old.  

anyway, thank you very much!!   this had turned into a mini-grail quest and you helped to break the spell that made the solution illusive.
