Image capture with external webcam

I want to capture still images in SnagIt with my Microsoft Lifecam, but when I try to specify the input source in SnagIt, the dropdown list does not include my webcam, only the built-in webcam in my laptop. 
SnagIt does know that my webcam is in the USB port, when I go to Video, I am able to select the webcam, however in Image this is not possible
Does anyone know how I get the webcam available on the Image tab as well?

I don't think you can.  You could take a short video then capture a still from it.  Camtasia may be a better bet for your needs.
