Not specific to CF, maybe Javascript or Jquery ... looked everywhere on google and found nothing.

So I am on a web site the other day and in addition to being able to upload your government issued photo id, you could also say cheese and

have your built in laptop web cam take your photo.

How do you do that?  What library tool?

You can do this in modern browsers using HTML5 getUserMedia() functionality.  No plugins or external libraries required.  Create a hidden input field on a standard HTML form and then direct the image capture javascript to populate the field with the image data.
