   import datetime
   import opencv.adaptors
   from opencv import highgui 
   import Image

   def get_image(camera):
       im = highgui.cvQueryFrame(camera)
        # Add the line below if you need it (Ubuntu 8.04+)
       im = opencv.cvGetMat(im)
      #convert Ipl image to PIL image
   dir(im)
   print "image taken"
       return opencv.adaptors.Ipl2PIL(im) 

   #_______________find usernae___________
   a=os.popen('whoami')
   l=a.read() 
   s=l.split('\n')
   uname=s[0]

   #______________find date n time  _________
   now = datetime.datetime.now()
   now = str(now)
  
   im=None
   camera= highgui.cvCreateCameraCapture(0)
   im = get_image(camera)
   os.chdir('/home/%s/Pictures' %(uname) )
