How to Take a Photo of Both People in Skype


The best way to take a picture of both people on Skype is through a screen shot. Skype only allows you to take a photo of either the other person in the video chat or yourself, not both people at the same time. Taking a photo of your video chat allows you to keep the memories of your chat.

Things You'll Need

  • Skype account
  • Mac or PC

Take a screen shot on a PC

  • Login to your Skype account and start a video chat.

  • Press "Alt" then press the "Print Screen" key, located on the top row of your keyboard. This will highlight the foremost window, your chat screen, and save it.

  • Open Microsoft Paint or another image editing program of your choice. Paint can be found by clicking "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "Paint."

  • Press "Ctrl+V" or click on "Edit" then "Paste" and your screenshot will appear in the Paint screen.

  • Click "File" then "Save" to save your screenshot.

Take a screenshot on a Mac

  • Login to your Skype account and start a video chat.

  • Hold "Command,"Shift," and "4" simultaneously to take a screen shot of only your video chat screen. You will see a dot appear on the screen where your cursor would be.

  • Move your cursor over your video chat screen, then press the space bar. You will see a camera icon on the screen.

  • Left click once. You will see a PDF icon on your desktop appear. Click on this icon to open your screenshot.
