Default taking pictures with computer?

We recently got an hp photosmart 618 camera. I was wondering if there's
a way to take pictures directly from the computer and bypass the memory
card?

Thanks.

I know some cameras can do this but not all. If it can be done there
should be
software for it that came with the camera.

If that would make it possible to send the picture directly to the
computer, by passing the camera's memory card, then yes. (We don't have
a memory card in our camera at present.)

Unless the computer has wifi or has a direct capture feature, you need
the card. With Wifi you need to be in the general area of the computer,
thethering means you need a direct connection to the computer (ala web
cam). Both of these senarios don't give much flexibility and are only
available on certain cameras. Also most cameras need a card just to get
them working, start it up and you get a message on the menu screen
"Need Card" or "No Card Present".
