    I notice that when I try to use the photobooth with the moving backdrops (like the fish, etc) it has 'holes' in the picture. It's not distinguishing me from the wall very well and the picture is patchy. anyone figure out a fix to this or having this issue also? :confused: Thank you :D

    PPC or Intel

    All of these features require an Intel Mac and do not work correctly on PPC, so unless you have a new Intel Mac, you are out of luck with the new ichat and photo booth features.

    For me the 'holes' are my eyebrows, hair, and goatee :)

    I can't figure out why as there is nothing the color of my hair in the background.

    make sure your background is different from your skin, hair and clothes color, and make sure you don't cast a shadow on your background
    it's complicated to do, this shot took me half an hour to set up

    over two years later...still having the same problems, with the backgrounds...are there any ideas on how to fix it from being so holey. such a great effect which becuase of the pixelation or whatever it is called, can not be used. and i have snow leopard with updates etc......

    You know your not going to get perfect results unless you have a perfect background. There is a reason the weatherman uses a green screen - that even has issues with the high end equipment they use - ever seen a weatherman wear a green tie?

    all I can say is, use some extra lights and make sure your background is as different from you as possible

    Heres a suggestion, stop messing with photobooth effects that are there for fun and buy a camera, a green sheet and a piece of video editing software. Problem solved :D
