    Hey guys,

    Last night I was trying out Chronosync to sync my 2 home directories between my iMac and my MacBook. Somewhere along the lines it synced my PhotoBooth photos to my iMac. Problem is I haven't got any photos is my MacBook to sync.

    I managed to get the photos back using Time Machine. How do I put them back into PhotoBooth? Do I have to restore the preference file aswell?


    Cheers,

    You can just put them in ~/Pictures/Photo Booth/

    My bad. I just guessed. There is one more step. After you copy jpg images to that folder (make it if it doesn't exist), open ~/Library/Application Support/Photo Booth/Recents.plist and follow the format of the existing images to add the filenames of images that you copied. Save the plist then open Photo Booth and your images should be there.
