skype-upsidedown

Two days ago I helped a friend to get its clean install of Microsoft Windows 7 when I run into a problem. While everything was nice and smooth – drivers, office and other software – with the Skype video calls I run into trouble: the camera was showing the image upside down. Quite funny at first but after a minute or two we were both asking how to fix this?

The solution is pretty easy…

1. Go to the top menu and click on “Tools -> Options

my-webcam-is-upside-down-vertically-inverted-how-to-repaire-it-in-skype-01

2. Click on “Webcam settings

my-webcam-is-upside-down-vertically-inverted-how-to-repaire-it-in-skype-02

3. Select “Camera Control” tab and use the vertical option to set your webcam image back on default.

my-webcam-is-upside-down-vertically-inverted-how-to-repaire-it-in-skype-03

Apply settings and this should fix the problem.

[UPDATE] In case of some Asus laptops, the web-camera is mounted upside-down. To solve the problem you can download the originality Windows Vista drivers and install them (even if you are currently using Windows 7 or 8).
