I've got a fingerprint reader (Authentek AES2810) built in to my laptop (Dell Latitude E5500) and would like to take a picture of my fingerprint (not just to use it to log-in or something alike, but to take a viewable picture). Is there an application for this?

Maybe fprint fprint demo

is the right app for you. But I don't know if you can open the saved pics with an image viewer but you can see it right after taking the pic.

I know that fingerprint-gui stores the fingerprint data locally in .bir files. I'm not sure if there's any way to open those in some sort of image viewer, but that's the only solution I can think of.
