...Why the hell are all pictures taken with iSights mirrored?
I'd guess that the iSight mirrors things because when people are viewing themselves on a webcam they view it as they would if they were looking in a mirror, so if for example you need to move to centre yourself you'd move the wrong way if it wasn't mirrored. It just makes it easier to position yourself properly. Folk who you're chatting to see the image unmirrored though, I think I'm right in saying.
The iSight's default setting for photos matches the default webcam setting, hence the mirroring.
That might not be the reason but that would be my guess.
Why is there no way to turn the mirroring off though? It would be nice to take a photo in the Booth without the writing on my t-shirt being backwards!
If you're using photobooth you can turn it off by using Edit>Auto flip new photos
Edit -> Autoflip New Photos
Cmd + Shift + F
Doesn't turn off the mirroring when you're looking at it, but it automatically flips them once you take them so everything's right.
Cool, thanks for that!
is there anyway to turn mirroring off on ichat, when viewing your own cam?
