Ok the problem i have is on my:

Hp Pavilion entertainment pc, (Laptop)
Running: windows vista home premium


the problem is i can't change the brightness, what I mean is when I take still snapshots (pics) or videos with my built-in webcam they always turn out very dark. I'm currently in a enlighten room so thatís not the problem.

Iíve been to my friends house and on his laptop (Sony Vaio) the software he has to take pics has settings that let him change the brightness and contrast, saturation and whatnot, but Quickplay the software that comes with hp laptops lack those functions (or I just canít find them :) ).

In the end what Iím really asking for is:

Can I change those settings on Quickplay?

if not..

Is there any software out there that can take pics out of my built in webcam and that will also let me change settings like brightness, contrast, ect..? (Preferably free)

I don't really like the HP Quickplay program, but I looked into it on my laptop.
I can't find any way to adjust picture quality with that program.

There is software available for working with pictures, adjusting image quality, etc.. I don't want to suggest any, as it is really a user preferance. You can Google for picture software and find something.

Although, I use Corel, which I think is a really good program. Adobe's software is probably top shelf, but expensive.

Another thing to consider on your HP laptop. If you are running on battery, the screen picture quality is going to be quite a bit darker than if you plug it in. Your laptop is set to conserve as much energy as possible while in battery mode.
