I have a MacBook Pro at work, but am new to Macs and have never used the webcam outside of Skype. Is it possible to take a still photo with the webcam?
Yes, use the Photo Booth application.
Check out /Applications/Photo Booth.app
You can with PhotoBooth. You can also use all kinds of crazy effects. I suggest trying this when you don't have any important appointments later. :)
