Take a picture from your webcam and save it to a jpeg.

A very slightly modified version of MarxBro's command.

This command takes a 1280x1024 p picture from the webcam.

If prefer it smaller, try changing the -s parameter: qqvga is the tiniest, vga is 640x480, svga is 800x600 and so on.

Get your smile on and press enter! :)
