    Do you guys remember when you first setup Leopard and it used the iSight to take a picture for your user account/ichat/etc?

    Where is that image stored? I want it for my facebook page..

    Can't you just use PhotoBooth to take a new one?

    Go to System Preferences -> Accounts -> click on your account

    Your pic should be there
    Click on the pic and you have the option to edit the pic
    You can copy and paste it from there

    Does that help?

    I don't have that pic so can't confirm a location, but try here ~/Library/Application Support/Address Book/Images

    I dont have a folder "Address Book" in that location :/

    and the picture I can copy from the preferences is the tiny one (50x50 or something) I thought there was a bigger one when I took it.

    Thanks for the help so far guys

    Have you opened PhotoBooth to see if maybe it is in there?
