Memo: A Slower Seesaw!
Yesterday I opened Photo Booth for the first time since upgrading to Mavericks last month - and today when I went into the Photo Booth folder (Pictures > Photo Booth) I see that not only are my test photos from yesterday not there, but al the other photos I've saved in that folder are gone also.

I used it as a catch-all folder to save other pics, but they're missing now - and they didn't get put in the trash.

Does anyone know where the new Photo Booth stores photos?

Thanks!

It should be in Users> Your user name> Pictures> PhotoBooth Library. To see the stored photos you need to right click and select show package contents.

Hmmm.... I don't have a PhotoBooth Library in my Pictures folder. I've checked to see if it rolled them into the iPhoto library, but no.

I had photos in there I don't have anywhere else. Really irritating..

Can you see the pictures in the PhotoBooth app?, if so just right click on a photo or video and select export.

THIS HAPPENED TO ME TOO. I did these steps and still, only the photos I JUST took. NONE of my old ones.
