If you are using windows, in the control panel is a place to access your camera settings. On Vista it is called "Scanners and Cameras".

Also, most of the main camera companies include a settings application with their drivers, such as logitech, which can also be accessed from the control panel. Some can also be accessed right from the Start Menu as well.

I hope that this has helped to solve your problem, good luck!

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu.

How to use face recognition on my toshiba l350 laptop


Normal 0 87dab65.jpgA growing number of digital cameras now include a Face Recognition mode. The camera detects faces in a scene and then automatically focuses (AF) and optimizes exposure (AE) and, if needed, flash output.
The technology can be effective when taking pictures of large groups, when a person is in the distance or when the subject moves into the frame. Even if a person moves, the camera will stay focused on it and adjust exposure. It is also effective when photographing people in bright light when the LCD is difficult to see.
Some digital cameras also have a tracking function that allows the user manually give priority to a single face. This comes in handy when taking photos in a crowd, at school plays and similar function.
Face the digital camera A person’s face must be facing towards the camera for Face Recognition AF/AE to work most effectively. Like so many digital camera features, it also works best when taking photos in good light.
Face Recognition, also known as Face Priority, is typically activated when switching a camera to portrait mode or a dedicated face-detecting shooting mode. Since the technology is hardware based, it is generally faster than manually composing and locking focus and exposure on a face.
A word of caution about using face detection It’s important to note that Face Detection (FD) may be associated with a multi-point autofocus mode, where the camera, not you, determines where to focus. When a face is not detected in a scene, the camera will revert to this mode.
Many photographers find multi-point autofocus mode to be inconsistent, if not unreliable. They use Single Area focus instead to have precise control of where the camera locks focus. They only switch to FD mode when photographing people.
