You can install something like Photo booth

please change your answer so it becomes as constructive as possible. Also, is there any reason to use that particular software? – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Mar 28 '13 at 12:52
No, there is no reason to use that particular software. I said "something like". – Ck- Apr 2 '13 at 5:35

If you type your service tag code into the dell website under the support / drivers section you'll be able to download the utilities that normally ship with your laptop. On there will be the software for controlling the webcam. If I recall correctly the dell webcam software lets you put virtual hats / masks on etc.
