    I just purchased an isight for my pre-photo-booth iMac, and I'm interested in taking still photos with it. Is there an easy way to do this, maybe through iMovie? thanks.

    I dont own iSight but iSight should be able to just take stills. if not, im sure u can find photobooth that ships with all thew new macs that allows you to take the stills

    Yeah there is.
    I don't know what it ships with, but the PhotoBooth app is extremely small.
    You can just go down to an Apple Store, find a PowerPC iMac (assuming you have a PowerPC Mac) and e-mail PhotoBooth to yourself on the iMac.

    ^^I'm gonna try that trick, but instead of emailing Photobooth, I'm gonna email Aperture to myself. I may also try emailing Final Cut Pro to myself. :eek:
