    Can you buy or download the Photobooth application on my Powerbook g4? I have the last Generation of Powerbook G4. And I have the separate iSight camera.

    I was playing around with my friends MacBook Pro this past weekend at a halloween party, and it was almost the hit of the party, so much fun! :)
    I've got to have it!

    But I can't seem to find it anywhere for purchase?

    Can you only get it on the new Macs?

    Help please! thx

    New macs come bundled with it.

    Leopard may or may not come with it... I know it will be coming with Front Row... so maybe photobooth as well.

    i'm not sure if this would work, but if you can find someone with a mac that came with photobooth you may be able to extract it from the install disk using Pacifist.

    I just got a 1.66 refurb mini. It didn't come with Photobooth, however the newer 1.83s do have it. I don't know why.

    I got it from a friend and dropped it into my apps folder. I too have a first gen. iSight. I have launched it once just to see if it worked. But I didn't even snap a pic or mess with the effects.

    Prior to getting the Mini I read online that people had installed it on PB's with varying success. It seems that older PBs have trouble with it and newer ones seemed to work. Seeing as you have the last pre-MBP PB, it may work on yours. It is a UB app.

    Simply drag n drop from one Mac to the other, works great.

    If he had a newer Mac. :rolleyes:

    Apple should bundle Photobooth with the iSights and Front Row with the remotes (and recievers).

    Actually, just as a point of reference, you can move any App from any Mac to another (assuming they're both OSX - never tried it in OS9).

    The free Apps, like PhotoBooth, will work without incident - just drag, drop, and you're good to go. The paid or third-party Apps will still work, and install, but they'll ask you for a serial number, which of course you wont have.

    ... oh, and we would never consider getting a cracked serial number for said Apps by using a shady source like Serial Box. No way.

    LOL @ clintob

    Yeah, I have nothing of importance to add to this discussion without repeating what someone said. :(
