    I need to be able to remotely retrieve the contents of a Photo Booth Library on a Mac Mini. I can probably use LogMeIn if I have to, but I would prefer something more automatic. I tried dropping the Photo Booth Library into Dropbox, but that made Photo Booth angry. Is there any way to do this?

    Probably best to use a symbolic link. Drop the Photo Booth library into the DropBox, then run this command in the Terminal (modify the path if necessary, post back if you're not sure how to do that):

    Code:
    ln -s ~/Dropbox/Photo Booth Library ~/Pictures/Photo Booth Library
    This is assuming you just put the Photo Booth Library into your main Dropbox folder and not a sub-directory.

    NOTE: I haven't tested with Photo Booth specifically, but it should work.
