Webcam Framing


Learn how to effectively frame yourself using your laptop or desktop computer’s webcam. In less than 30 seconds, we will walk you through how to set up a great webcam shot.



  • Have your eyes at the same level as your webcam (avoid “speaking down” to your audience).
  • To remain in the frame at all times, avoid moving your feet around as you present.
  • Consider using the Panopto smart camera operator feature if you move your arms around regularly.


Using the Panopto Capture tool or your computer’s photobooth application, record yourself in order to get a sense of your framing.
