I noticed a great tip from the "New Mac Tip Every Day" widget I installed. Creating an Animated Avatar with Photo Booth from Julian. There are lots of tips4mac but this one piqued my interest. Okay, I LOVE to play with Photo Booth. The only catch is that this only works with the version in the Leopard OS, darn it.

Julian's tip? Open PB, click the button to "Take four quick pictures", get ready, click the camera button to start the process. Four quick flashes later you have funny looking picture in your PB tray. Move up to the menu and choose File > Export and give it a name.

Open the photo using your web browser (e.g., Safari, Firefox, etc.) and you'll see your avatar You can also load it on a photo storage site such as PhotoBucket or Flickr and then place in your own website ~ just like I did!

This is so fantastic that I need to have the guys install my Leopard OS. I simply must play with this...
