Arduino and a webcam

Hello, is there a way to control webcam with arduino and transfer pictures that webcam makes to PC? (Arduino would be connected to PC via USB, or maybe webcam connected to PC and controlled by arduino, i don't really know since i have never done anything that would involve webcams and PC into arduino project)

I don't think that it is possible with arduino because image processing requires more RAM size. For this project you better select raspberry pi.

what is done before is to add some servo's to the webcam and let the Arduino control the pan and tilt of the cam so you can point it to almost any direction. (think surveillance)

The webcam should be connected directly to the PC.
