    I was just wondering if a picture can only be taken with the laptop facing me. I was trying to take a picture of my cats but I could not figure out how to without standing in front of them, like when we are taking a selfie.Is there anyway I can point the camera at something and take the picture?

    The easiest way is to purchase a usb web cam from ebay
    you can then take pictures from every angle.

    approx cost $7 or £3.50

    Most of the laptops come with inbuilt web cam.If your laptop does not have a camera, you can get a web came from your local store or online store. It is better to go to the local store because the salesman will help setting web cam on your laptop.

    My laptop has a camera but it only faces me and I haven't use it yet. I wonder if it has a way to take picture that it is not facing me.

    We used to have a separate webcam on our desktop, and that one I knew how to operate, but with my laptop, I am clueless :)
