You have to just create two files as like bellow and you will get layout like as bellow:

<script src=""></script>

<script src=""></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

<style type="text/css">

#results { padding:20px; border:1px solid; background:#ccc; }




<div >

<h1 >Capture webcam image with php and jquery -</h1>

<form method="POST" action="storeImage.php">

<div >

<div >

<div id="my_camera"></div>


<input type=button value="Take Snapshot" onClick="take_snapshot()">

<input type="hidden" name="image" >


<div >

<div id="results">Your captured image will appear here...</div>


<div >


<button >Submit</button>





<!-- Configure a few settings and attach camera -->

<script language="JavaScript">


width: 490,

height: 390,

image_format: 'jpeg',

jpeg_quality: 90


Webcam.attach( '#my_camera' );

$img = $_POST['image'];

$folderPath = "upload/";

$image_parts = explode(";base64,", $img);

$image_type_aux = explode("image/", $image_parts[0]);

$image_type = $image_type_aux[1];

$image_base64 = base64_decode($image_parts[1]);

$fileName = uniqid() . '.png';

$file = $folderPath . $fileName;

file_put_contents($file, $image_base64);



Now you have to create “upload” folder on your root path, then you can check it.
