    I want to take a picture using the Pre3 front facing camera. The camera app has no option to switch from the back to the front camera.

    Although I am sure you have your reasons--why would you want to go through the hassle to use the tiny front facing camera without autofocus and likely fewer megapixels when all you have to do is turn the Pre around to take great pictures? I get it for video chat but why for a picture?

    Not trying to be a jerk, just curious.

    I agree especially when you remember there is a nice mirror on the back

    You can initiate a video call on skype. It works fine.

    Thankyou Jason and Local.bin. How stupid on my part not noticing that from the beginning. Now I'm going to apologize here and in the other threads where I've made the same silly question.

    Synergy putting me to shame! ;-)

    I learned one use for the front facing camera on Monday. My son and I were trying to take a picture of ourselves at the Rangers/Cardinals game and the lights made the "mirror" impossible to see a reflection. We would have been glad to take a lower resolution photo than try 10 times to take a picture with my finger hovering over the green button backwards trying to hit it it right.

    thanks for your support. Still trying to improve PhotoMe. Leave review in app catalog, if you have suggestions.

    thanks again
