Fun with Photo Booth

So, before I got my new Mac, I saw these pictures all over Flickr and I had no clue how they were done! Well, I know now. Basically, when you get a new iMac, a little camera comes installed in the computer. This camera records still photos and videos. There’s a little program called “Photo Booth” that you play with to get silly and goofy pictures. A child (or in my case an adult…but this is questionable sometimes) can play with this feature for hours. Here’s some of the silly photos I took.

I had fun with it. Definitely, if you are on the fence about getting a Mac, this cool photo booth feature may be something that might just tip your decision. I love it!

Until next time Swellions!


I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it!

I finally got my new Mac and I’m so excited about it and I just can’t hide it! I got to play with a few of the features including the Photobooth application and the iMovie application and I made what you see above and below (my 365 photo…yes, I know I look crazed in it). I think my video turned out really cute. I’m excited about it and the possibilities I have with iMovie.


It was a beautiful thing seeing the screen below come up! I had a G4 tower that was 9+ years old. It just wasn’t cutting it here lately I’m so grateful to have a brand new machine to work on, blog on, and communicate on. Tonight I Skyped with both my mom and da and Kathy! It was fun and what a great way to stay in touch.

My new mac!!!

So, hopefully things will be a lot easier for me to do graphically, photographically, and blog-wise. I’m super excited, did I say that yet??
