Some webcam programs will allow you to email the picture to someone.  
You might be able to use such a program to email the picture to your 
production computer from the computer with the web cam and then have a 
script upload the attachments to the server.  I can think of a few ways 
to do it if the webcam computer and your production machines were Macs, 
but I'm not certain of what is available on Windows to do this.
