    This works great on the tablet – thanks!

    One thing I noticed is that if the other end is the PC version of Skype, the image of the tablet user is cut off on the top and bottom. Is there a setting / feature to switch the PC Skype to view the whole portrait image? I adjusted the borders but the aspect ratio stayed the same.
