    I'm not at my Mac, so I'm not 100% positive, but I believe the Photo Booth pictures are stored at:

    [User Account] -> Pictures -> Photo Booth

    The best way to tell is to take a new picture using Photo Booth and see if this folder exists. :D

    Click on your HD then the folder users. there should be a icon with a house and your user name. that's it.

    I remember being able to drag them into the actual application, but I'm not sure. Try that.

    Edit: Never mind, just tried and it didn't work. Funny, I remember doing that at one point.

    I found this that tells you how to import photos into Photo Booth:

    You just need to add the photos to the location I stated earlier (Macintosh HD -> Users -> [your user name] -> Pictures -> Photo Booth) and then follow the instructions on adding the file names to the .plist file.
