Inserting Camera Photos in OneNote

Using the OneNote application on Windows, Mac and mobile devices provides the option to capture images with the built in camera. Most computers and mobile devices include a camera or a webcam. This camera can be used to take pictures and include them in notes. The process is slightly different depending on the device so we will review the process on different devices.
