Capture Photos

New Digication ePortfolios allow you to take a picture directly from your web browser with any webcam you have connected to your computer.

Please note: This feature is currently unavailable while using the Safari web browser. If you would like to use Take Picture for your ePortfolio, we recommend using either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser.

First, select the Add Content button (1) in the lower right corner of your selected slide.

If this is your first time using your computer's camera with Digication, your web browser will prompt you to give dialog.files.digication.com permission to use your camera. Click Allow (3) to give your Digication access to your camera. The example below is what the permission prompt from the Google Chrome web browser will look like.
