So I was wondering if there is a software that uses your webcam to dim the brightness of your laptop atomatically for you.

Typically laptops have sensors near the webcam that will do this for you.  Just like on an iPhone, or other device that can do adaptive lighting. I don't know of any  webcam control software, like this.

Many computers do have an Ambient Light sensor. If your laptop does not have this, you can buy one with some Googleing. I have looked around for software to do this with your webcam, but I could not find any. It is a great idea though.
