    I work at an institution, and am using PhotoBooth to take pictures of students for their student cards. I would use a digital camera, but Photobooth is just so easy..

    I'm just wondering if anyone has tried printing (digital) any of the photo's yet? It doesn't need need to be top notch quality-wise, but still needs to be decent to use for photo ID.

    Any feedback appreciated.

    The quality should be fine for student ID cards. When my Uni student card was made, the photo was taken with a webcam and it looks fine. The camera in the MacBooks is probably even better quality.

    The iSights have a resolution of 640x480 unless I'm mistaken. That should let you print a picture that is 1.6 inch high with quite good quality (300dpi).
