    I was just playing around with PhotoBooth, and though I really hate the x-ray effect, I randomly put it on, and randomly inverted the colors. In the dim evening light of my room, and with just a desklamp, this is the coolest effect ever.

    Look at this pic, taken with a normal xray effect in PhotoBooth. Now press cmd+alt+ctrl+8. this will invert the colors of your screen, and make the pic look the awesomest. the same combo will bring your screen back to normal.

    I really hope Apple will integrate something like this in PhotoBooth for Leopard, if it's not too late. :D

    I just took another awesome pic. I really love this effect! Anyone else like it?

    The combo or the effect? This thread had 50 views, but you are the first to reply, and this saying you learned a new combo:p

    back in the old days, when I joined in March, it didn't used to be that way, no didn't used to be this way at all. back then we respected 68000's!:D

    Well, when you inverse the colors of an image twice, you will end up with the original colors. It's kind of neat to sort of 'reveal' the hidden color in a photo such as that. :D

    It is, but that's probably just because of the low-light conditions in the room. Cameras do funky things when they don't have enough light.

    Also, you can inverse colors in Photoshop ;) Check it:

    hmm, i wish, i wish I had Photoshop:D

    BTW, 'till Doctor Q gets here, you might wanna take that photo down. It doesn't bother me, but it's illegal to do editing of other people's photos without their permission on these boards;)

    Well, I tried in ordinary light, and it still looks red, but without too much glow.
