    My wife has a brand new MacBook (her first). During the initial boot process, the Mac took her picture (of the dog licking her face).

    Where is that picture stored? We NEED to upload it to Facebook.

    Thanks.

    The steps listed for Leopard, in the linked thread, can be drastically shortened.

    Code:
    dscl . read /Users/shortname Picture
    Where shortname is your user account's shortname. But, it is in /Library/Caches

    The resulting photo is only 256x256, so it probably isn't worth using.
