WTF?

WTF

And this is a mirror-image photo of me taken using my new laptop and its rather silly Photo Booth application [see: previoius entry about new laptop]. I am actually thinking, “What the fuck?” when it is being taken.

And this is a mirror-image photo of my hand pointing at the wet patch on my office ceiling where the water that killed my PowerBook came through. Must do some work.

  1. Command (Apple Key) – F will flip the photo around to non-mirror image. Apparently people felt very weird when the live camera image on the screen wasn’t in mirror image, so Apple changed it. On iChat, you see yourself in mirror image, but the recipient sees you properly.The next mac OS update will feature an automatic back-up called Time Machine so all documents, bookmarks, keychain passwords, email settings, cookies etc will be squirreled away to wherever you’ve indicated (e.g. a hard drive attached to a wireless router) for that rainy day.I do not work for Apple, I’m just a fanboy. End of nerdy message.

  3. Have you not found the lovely “effects” baked into Photo Booth? Hit the “Effects” button, and you can warp and funkify yourself. I lost hours playing with it when I got my new Mac in February.

  5. Photographs ( self taken or not ) when you pass 40 are a lottery. Sometimes a nightmare , sometimes the equivalent of a ten pound win. I avoid cameras as much as possible nowadays.
