But consider your other options. Take a gander at the three little icons in the lower-left corner of the screen. Here’s what they do:
- If you click the leftmost icon and then click the shutter button, Photo Booth takes four successive snapshots in a row, right after the three-two-one countdown. The just-captured images appear in a single “four-up” snapshot, showing your four poses. You’ve activated burst mode.
- Clicking (or dialing) the icon in the middle sticks with the one-shot approach, following the same three-two-one countdown.
- Making use of the icon on the right puts Photo Booth in video mode. After the countdown, the computer starts making a little video, complete with audio. You have to click the shutter button again (now a stop button) to cease recording. A red digital counter reminds you that you’re still shooting.
You can remove any of the still images or videos you’ve captured in Photo Booth by clicking a thumbnail of those images and clicking the circled X that appears on the upper-left corner of the thumbnail.
