Photo Booth.

I need to get out of the office, but I'm fooling around with the new computer. I discovered Photo Booth, which has various psychedelic effects:

Really, I've gotta get out of here....

uh oh. My partner got a new MacBook Pro recently, with the camera built in and photo booth installed. She's spent several multi-hour sessions playing with it, and there's no warning when the urge will strike. It's just suddenly fun to make faces at the camera and start playing with effects.

It's summer. You have the time. Enjoy!

I just realized I have no idea if people can look at me through the camera.

Ann D. Warhol!

Ann, do you mean if you're in a chat program? Probably they can, by default. But you should be able to change the settings. If you're in iChat, look for a little icon by a person's name, to see if they have AV capability.

The pics are cute.

I am very jealous of your new computer.

Steve Donohue said...

You look about 20 years younger in the Andy Warhol-style picture.

I got my MacBook a few weeks ago and love it. The built in camera is great and when Skype releases their new mac version they will have video chat enabled as well. Ann, in addition to what Elizabeth mentioned about iChat, there is another use of the camera which can be found here http://www.oreillynet.com/lpt/wlg/7409

Can I vlog? I want to do that Mickey Kaus "Blogging Heads" kinda thing.

Ricardo said...

Nice photos. To paraphrase the maxim, you're not getting older, you're getting, well, more hallucinogenic.

OK, I just noticed you replaced your profile photo with one from this post. May I suggest one where you are smiling - the world lives a great smile!

Note - I consider what you are doing to be grinning, but not smiling...

nypundit said...

Ann you would be able to do that but you need additional software in order to do it. Here is a good link for a how to and what you would need.

Buddy Larsen said...

Ha--thanks, SC--I'll have some tomato soup, then she can publish the cans--

Buddy Larsen said...

I don't remember them seeming so shallow--reckon ya had to be there at the time, to really get into the spirit.

Such a diva.

Neat pictures!

"I am very jealous of your new computer." Me too. My love/hate affair with Bill Gates is developing into a real resentment.

Those are all really cool!

Great profile photo. It has none of the problems that I noticed with the previous profiel photo -- you know, the problem I said I saw but you couldn't see.

Code word: erreeunx -- there's a prescription for when Tim Burton loses his touch.

Jennifer said...

I want this program.

I have no idea if people can look at me through my camera either. It kinda freaks me out. I always have a guard over it.

Steve does look like more spontaneous... Every time Bill comes over I have to sign another Agreement not to share his conversation with anyone.

I like the top one the best. The comic book thing.

Which reminds me. Richard Linkletter is coming out with another movie where he shot the actors and then did movie magic to make the movie look animated. What's the deal with that? Why does he love that so much?

Internet Ronin said...

What a delightful smile! They really are all great pix, but my fav is probably the 1st in thew last row. BUT, I think that one (at the top) has a certain enigmatic quality to it (see Lisa, Mona) that I really like, but I'm not sure the "modified Sunday cartoon" look suits it.

Agreed. It pisses me off that one of my favorite Philip Dick novels is coming to the screen, but it's going to look like that.

Marghlar said...

Totally off topic:

Based on the background, I was just wondering. How long does it take to accumulate one of those awesome law professor book collections that ya'll always have? Is it a financial burden, early on?

Ann Althouse said...

Marghlar: A lot of the books are sent to me free, and then a lot were bought on a book allowance and later a professorship. It is really cool to be able to buy all the books you want.

Dave said...

The pictures are cool, but give me a Wintel PC any time. I like viruses and spyware. Honestly, I do.

Robert said...

It's not the Andy Warhol filter that takes 20 years off; it's the smile.

I haven't used Photo Booth, but PhotoShop can keep me entertained for hours.

The Lichtenstein-style one needs a balloon with a caption (something like "Omigod, I forgot to have children," except you didn't) ...

Are you sure you don't have these mixed up? I mean, Steve's the one who's subpoening bloggers for spilling his beans.

More like, Bill Gates is obviously a nerd, and it's fun to pick on nerds and make them feel bad about who they are, especially if they make more money than, you know, actually creative people. Because they're so tacky! And they have no friends! NERRRRRD!
